16.0 x 20.0 (inch)Templeton's point of departure is his own life, both his everyday life and his experiences: Skateboarding, friends, traveling and his relationship with his muse and wife of many years, Deanna. Life as a professional skateboarder affects Templeton's works, and with an outspoken approach to the skater environment that he is himself a part of and an icon of, Templeton presents and comments on his life, the people he meets, and the places he visits on his many travels around the world. The photographs document, often in a very personal manner, a life which is both normal and extreme, ordinary and unusual, raw and intimate.
