Miniature Body Landscapes

Are those rolling hills or the curves of the human body? Florida-based psychologist-turned-artist Allan Teger re-imagines the human figure as natural landscapes in his intriguing photo series entitled Bodyscapes. The self-taught photographer initiated this ongoing project 25 years ago due to his developing interest in psychology, specifically the human consciousness. Similar to the effects of deliberate optical illusions, Teger’s photographs examine perception while remaining whimsical.

The tiny subjects in the photographs are miniature toys, silhouetted to better give the appearance of real people. Whether the figurines are engaged in rigorous outdoor activities or lounging by a belly button pool, there is a believability to the scene that causes the viewer to do a double-take. Reevaluation plays as big a part in this series as immediate perception. What are you viewing? Upon reassessment, are you able to see something else?

You can view more explicit images from the series at the official website for Bodyscapes. To meet the man behind the erotic landscape photography, Allan Teger will be a participating artist at the Las Olas Festival of the Arts that takes place from January 7 to January 8, 2012 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
