The Bodyscapes® of self-taught American photographer Allan Teger is a series of black and white photographs depicting miniature scenes on the nude body mimicking various landscapes. “I remember the moment that the idea for Bodyscapes® came to me.

This was it - the universe repeating its shapes - a body looking like a mountain. It was also an example of two realities coexisting.

I knew instantly that I had an entire series of images waiting to be captured on film," says Teger.
