An abstract view of the human form

Landscapes of the Body is a portfolio of abstract low key photographic work created by award winning legally blind photographer Ted Tahquechi, and his wife Carrie 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, 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 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, gender, body size, 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 physical attractiveness.


This black and white abstract view of the human form resembles undulating sand dunes. The image is softly lit from the left and the structure of the dunes fade into shadow.

Focus on accessibility

A multi-sensorial approach

Landscapes of the Body is an accessible exhibition designed to be enjoyed by visually impaired and fully sighted viewers alike, in a multi-sensorial experience. Exhibitions are presented via traditional framed prints of the images, with accompanying audio descriptions for each image created by the artist. Audio descriptions are accessed with any smartphone by scanning a QR code. Tactile versions of selected images also accompany each showing, rounding out the sensorial enjoyment of this unique view of the human form.
