Can there be more than one reality at a time, and can we experience them both? These were the questions that led photographer and former psychology professor Allan I. Teger to create this collection of black and white Bodyscapes (R). At first glance, Bodyscapes appear to be landscapes; a second look shows that they are in fact nude bodies with small toys and miniatures set on them. Spanning a 35-year period, this collection shows more than 110 black and white images photographed in a single exposure without any post processing or manipulation. The body becomes the setting for golfing, skiing, mountain climbing, surfing, and other sports. Other images feature landscapes ranging from rolling farmlands to beaches and outer space. They are fun, beautiful, and sensual, but always in good taste. This elegant portfolio of Teger's images is an ideal, reality-bending addition to any art photography library.
