I've been awarded a Fulbright grant to return to India to continue work on an anonymous collection of photographs made in that country in 1945. Working with Jerri Zbiral, we will be based in Kolkata for 4 months. We'll be collaborating with Indian photographers to use the historic images as inspiration for the creation of new works.

Here is a link to a slide show about the project:

And here is a link to the blog I wrote 2 years ago chronicling our first research trip:
Review of 'Out in the Cold'
Turn to Alan Teller’s dense and involving color abstractions of shards of ice amid bare twigs, dead leaves, and brown grass at the Ryerson Conservation Area near Deerfield, and you will find some redemption for all of the slips and stumbles of outrageous winter. Never does photography perform its office of alerting us to what we overlook around us as when we are too distressed and distracted to step back and see when we are there. (Michael Weinstein)
In conjunction with Evanston Library installation of Adlai's Woods exhibit:

Go Do Good
Chicago Photography Collective, 108 N. State, Chicago
July 7 – October 1, 2011
In conjunction with the Loop Alliance's initiative, inspired by Kay Rosen's text art, a group of CPC photographers focused on on-profit groups with which we are involved. I first exhibited 6 pieces based on my work with the Expanding Lives program that brings promising young women from Niger to Chicago. I then showed 3 pieces made in conjunction with the Kovler Center for Victims of Torture. The series explored issues of representation--the first set featured people who were able to present a public face. The second set highlighted that victims of abuse are all around us, yet we often cannot see their faces.
