Landscapes of the Body is a portfolio of low key photographic work created by award winning legally blind photographer Ted Tahquechi. This fine art collection showcases the form, curve, and texture of the human body in the Bodyscape style of portraiture. Typically faceless, a Bodyscape is a style of artistic close-up photography where images of the human form convey the impression of landscapes. Work in this style can range from abstract images, to flowing and sensual.
Viewers of this collection will experience imagery ranging from softly lit, easily recognizable forms, to those more indefinite, thought-provoking and abstract. Throughout its black and white images, the collection explores both male and female models ages 19 to 76, with a multitude of ethnicity and body sizes ranging from petite to plus-size. While the imagery is of the nude form, it is not explicit, making this collection suitable for all viewers.
These images celebrate diversity in age, body size and physical ability and illustrate that the beauty of the human form is present in every body and not dependent on the idealized media-driven definition of beauty.
This fine art collection is currently booked through June 2020. If you would like to feature this body of work, in your establishment, details can be found on the contact page here on our website.
Landscapes of the Body is currently on display in the Lighthouse for the Blind gallery space located at 1155 Market St. in San Francisco from mid-January 2020 through June 2020. If you find yourself in San Francisco, I invite you to come view the collection. Special tactile-friendly prints have been created for this exhibition and are on display alongside the traditional prints.
