Photographer Allan Teger was originally trained as a social psychologist, whose academic practice influenced and inform his photography series Bodyscapes. Having taken interest in altered realities, mysticism and meditation early on, Teger turned to photography in the 70’s as a medium to illustrate the coexistence of two realities. Bodyscapes play on perception of reality through creative portrayal of social activities engaged atop the human body. The body becomes at once the object and subject of the work, acting as both the focal and supporting element to the photographic plane.
Having left began the series in 1975, Teger left academics in 1981 to devote his full time to photography.
