Photographer David Teplica to Present Unique Lecture at Palmer Museum

It’s October once again, or as I call it, “Halloween Month” — which means it’s time to get your fill of everything cryptic and creepy.

Lucky for you, photographer David Teplica, who is known for combining medical imagery with photography, will stop by the Palmer Museum of Art’s Palmer Lipcon Auditorium today at 4:30 p.m. His lecture, entitled “Observations from the Art/Science Interface,” will focus on the intersection of art and the human form.

Teplica, who is both a plastic surgeon and a photographer by trade, focuses his photography on human anatomy. Some of his subjects include identical twins and even human X-rays, resulting in some very “American Horror Story”-style photos.

Teplica owns a private practice located in Chicago, where he received his degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The combination of his everyday medical profession and his photography sets up some truly intriguing subjects for his photographs.

Check out some of his photos below:
