The Secret Photos (personally signed by Ben Asen)

In 1981 my friend Byron Priess hired me as a photographer for a special project. A book titled 'The Secret'. This book sent its readers on a journey, an adventure, and a treasure hunt. It enticed its readers to follow clues buried deep in paintings, sculptures, photos, and poems which would enable them to find one of 12 treasures buried all across North America. 

Initially, the book did not sell well and was a project I quickly forgot about. However, over the past 40 years, the book has developed a cult following, luring in tens of thousands of people who work together tirelessly, to solve the mystery Byron left us with.

This special collection of signed prints is a portion of my contribution to this unique endeavor. Each photo has been reproduced from the original negative, providing us with clarity and level of detail unavailable to even the best printers in the 1980s. Allowing everyone to see these exquisite sculptures clearly through my lens, exactly how Byron intended. The sculptures were all created by the talented artist Jo-Ellen Trilling. Without her, these unique photographs would not be possible. 

This collection is dedicated to my dear friend Byron, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the UJA New York's Byron Preiss Children's Fund, an organization close to Byron's heart.
