Ed Templeton: Wayward Cognitions
Ed Templeton is best known as an American professional skateboarder, contemporary artist, and photographer. An accomplished yet true to earth human being, Templeton has founded Toy Machine and been inducted to the Skateboard Hall of Fame in 2016. His black and white photographs beautifully capture intimate portraits of street life and individuals in his local neighborhood.
Wayward Cognitions beautifully presents selected work from Templeton's 20-year-spanning archives. These selected photographs do not belong to a particular collection or carry a theme or subject, Templeton wanted to accomplish something different by presenting the in-between moments, the people watching, and everyday vignettes. It is up to the reader to weave a story from his photographs.
The photographs in Wayward Cognitions were printed by Templeton in his darkroom; he then created the layout and design himself, building the book from scratch in his home studio.
