This publication is a selection of photographs from Orange County artist Ed Templeton’s vast street photography archive – curated, arranged and then rearranged by the man himself. By combining intimate, accidental and unconnected moments into one linear piece of work, he tells hundreds of new stories through the thoughtful arrangement of semi-related yet completely unfastened imagery “I’m out there shooting photos all the time that don’t necessarily fall under any theme other than general life,” says Templeton, “which is a lame title for a book.”

With a wink to the absurd, sandwiched between a cover of patterned parentheses and with an afterword built from his own stream-of-consciousness storytelling, Templeton delivers a visual mountain from an archive of stunning molehills – the images are carefully chosen, shuffled by hand and laid out with the duelling impulses of wonder and wit.

Born in 1972 and raised in the suburbs of Orange County, California, Ed Templeton is a painter, photographer and a respected cult figure in the subculture of skateboarding. His work has been exhibited worldwide.
