This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A plastic surgeon and photographer, his works are studies of twins and the human body.

Born on April 27, 1959, Teplica received the Trustee's Scholarship to complete the Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  During the same two year time period between General Surgery and Plastic Surgery training at the University of Chicago, Teplica received a Surgical Scientist Training Grant from the NIH and worked in the laboratory at night doing anatomic research.  

"My dual obsessions are both about perception of the body.  In photography --in two dimensions-- I'm concerned about how light plays off of body surfaces and changes the way a person or situation is perceived.  Form, symmetry, and composition can all be used to evoke specific emotional or psychological responses from the viewer.  In the three-dimensional field of Plastic Surgery, form is altered so that a patient sees himself differently.  Interestingly, society may or may not see the changes, but often reacts more favorably to a post-surgical patient who carries himself
more confidently through life's daily routine."

Teplica manages a private plastic surgical practice in Chicago and prints of his photographic work are held in many museum, corporate, and private collections.
