Allan Teger

Allan Teger was one of the first contemporary 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.

Allan Teger, who holds a Ph.D in psychology, taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Boston University before leaving academics in 1981 to pursue a full time career in art. Much of his work is derived from his interest in consciousness and mysticism and from the practice of meditation
