We are constantly updating our Frequently Asked Questions section – here you will find information on participating in the project, equipment used and everything you need to know if you are interested in booking an exhibition for the project.

Exhibiting the collection

How can I get hold of you to discuss a showing date at my establishment?

Contact Ted at nedskee@tahquechi.com

How are the images presented?

The images are framed and ready to hang in either 16X20 or 13X19 format. We typically display between 12 and 15 images, but are of course willing to work with your available space limitations.

Where do you exhibit your images?

Landscapes of the Body has been shown in galleries, museums, and art collectives in the Denver metro and surrounding areas. We are happy to discuss exhibiting at out-of-area locations.

Participation FAQ

Is previous modeling experience required to participate?

Absolutely not, we have as many professional models as amateurs featured in the collection. Models must be over the age of 18 with valid ID, and participants are required to sign a standard model release.  

I am XX years old, weigh XXX, have XX tattoos, have scars, etc. Can I still participate in your project?

Landscapes of the Body is a body-positive collection. We have male and female models ranging from ultra-thin to plus sized. Some of our models have tattoos, some don’t. Ages range from 19 to 76 with a wide variety of ethnicity represented.

What are the images used for?

This project was created as a way to share with others the way Ted sees the world around him. With his limited vision, he sees primarily in light, form and shape. At present, the collection of images is being shown in Galleries in the Denver and surrounding area. This body-positive vision of the human form has also been featured on multiple national news channels and in numerous photographic publications worldwide. Please check the upcoming shows section for current details on upcoming exhibitions.

Will my face be shown in the images?

No, Landscapes of the Body is a low-key, abstract study of the human form. Facial features are intentionally not shown in the images.

Will my identity be published or on display during showings of the collection?

This is up to you. Generally we keep all participant information confidential, however, if you would like to use inclusion in this project as a modeling reference we would be happy to accommodate that.

Where are you located?  

We are located near Denver Colorado, but often travel to other locations.

Do you pay?

We do.
