BODYSCAPES the photography of Allan Teger

I remember the moment that the idea for Bodyscapes® came to me. I was thinking that the shape and structure of the universe repeated itself at every level and suddenly I had the image in my mind of a skier going down a breast. This was it - the universe repeating its shapes - a body looking like a mountain. It was also an example of two realities coexisting.

Bodyscapes were originally designed to illustrate the concept that two realities could exist simultaneously - a concept that he was teaching at the time. Teger, who holds a Ph.D. in psychology, taught full time at the University of Pennsylvania and Boston University before leaving academics in 1981 to pursue a full time career in art. Much of his work is derived from his interest in consciousness and mysticism and from the practice of meditation.

Teger's Bodyscapes Photographs have been the subject of two books, have been published in over 20 countries, and have been featured in gallery shows across the country.
