Thursday evening treat: Bodyscapes by Allan Teger

Allan Teger is one of my favourite photographers; influenced by the concepts of altered realities and mystical consciousness, he creates his images by using the body as backdrop on which he places toys and miniature people. The result is is an picture that can be interpreted as just a body or the body as a landscape ie perhaps a hill (image above), and a lot of people can enjoy the fact that both perceptions are correct at the same. I first came across Teger's series on a poster in one of my flatmates bedrooms at university and was instantly drawn to his work, the subtlety and humour of the compositions just make me smile!
