Wires Crossed is my long term documentary look at the subculture of skateboarding. These photographs have been present throughout my work since the beginning, but it has yet to be presented as a fully realized completed project. This project is the reason I started shooting photos and is essentially my life's work. I have plans to make a book and exhibition of this work in the near future. E.T
Part memoir, part document of the DIY, punk-infused subculture of skateboarding as it came of age in the 1990s and early 2000s,
Ed Templeton’s Wires Crossed pulses with the raw, combustive energy of Templeton’s image-making from the last twenty-plus years. Illustrated by photographs, collages, texts, maps, and other ephemera from Templeton’s journals.
