The project’s monochrome photos are made by placing miniatures directly on nude models, which become the landscape for comical, often suggestive recreation. The project began in 1976 and continues through today.

Unique landscapes produced by photographing toys & miniatures on the human body. Each is a single shot, on traditional film. The result is sometimes subtle, sometimes humorous, but always delightful!

The result is sometimes subtle, sometimes humorous, but always delightful. Allan is self educated in art and photography. Allan Teger holds a Ph.D in psychology.

Photographs of the nude body which give the impression of landscape. These monochrome art photographs are done in limited editions for the collector of fine art. The naked female and male form become ski slopes, fishing holes, golf courses and places where motorcycles, horses, rowboats, sailboats, biplanes, and mountain climbers play.

Allan Teger began hand coloring black and white photographs in 1978, before this old process regained its popularity. He likes it, he says, “because it is the color of memory – the timeless moment where we can still feel the energy of all the people who could have passed by that spot.”

Allan’s first subjects were the remains of old Americana: diners, amusement parks and carousels, old theaters and fast food stands, neon signs, 50′s cars, art deco buildings and the old southwest. When those subjects became hard to find, he began photographing in Europe, where his subjects were cafes, storefronts, architecture, holy sites, cottages and marketplaces, street scenes, doors and windows. Allan Teger’s newest work explores the winter Carnival in Venice, Italy. The images come from France, Italy, England, Portugal, Greece, Israel and Morocco.

Allan Teger is self taught in art and photography, but holds a Ph.D. in psychology. He left academics after 12 years as a professor, counselor and dean to devote full time to art. His background in psychology of consciousness, mysticism, and meditation have greatly influenced his work.

About – Allan Teger

Allan Teger was one of the first contemproray artists to rediscover the old technique of hand painting photographs. His work explores our memories and dreams with images of old diners, amusement parks and other icons of the vanishing American landscape from the first part of the century. Other images include scenes from Europe which depict what is quickly disappearing the old cafes, storefronts and simple lifestyle of a bygone era.

The most recent European images are from the Carnival in Venice Italy. The tradional technique of hand painting a black and white photograph adds to the emotional quality of the images. The result is an image that evokes a timeless moment, the energy of stillness, in which the past and the present and the future all come together.
