PARIS:

In this third installment of his City Confessions series Ed Templeton presents 69 black and white analog photographs shot in the city of Paris over the last 23 years. Taking long circuitous walks through the city from Montmartre to the Panthéon, from Cimetière du Père-Lachaise to the Champs-Élysées, Templeton spends his days in the streets observing the denizens of the city, both the locals and the tourists as they go about their lives in this historic metropolis. Employing a cinéma vérité style to capture people in everyday situations, the photographs depict daily life in Paris with its ebbs and flows, taking the pulse of a city whose casual chic style is unmistakable.

LONDON:

“City Confessions #2 London is a mostly recent study on the city of London. Although some photos in this book go back over 20 years, the majority were taken over the past decade on numerous trips. Since the mid 1990’s, once or twice a year I find myself in London for a few days or weeks at a time and end up on long walks shooting photos with my Leica. The pictures in this book were chosen to highlight a particular shade of London I have always found interesting, Moments of weariness, furtive glances and subtle gestures within a densely populated city center as the swarms of people perform the ceremony of getting through another day.”

Tokyo:

The photographs in this book were taken during seven trips to Tokyo between the years 1998 and 2018, with the majority being shot between 2016 and 2018.

I first came to Tokyo in 1998 on a skateboarding tour, and then again two times in 2001, first for a big citywide art exhibition called "Untitled 2001" and then again as a skateboarder later that year. Those first visits to Tokyo were full of walking and wandering and photographing in the streets when I wasn't skateboarding. Then in 2016 I came back to Tokyo as a tourist after a long absence. These more recent trips have been more focussed on shooting photographs and observing the life and rhythms of the people of Tokyo. I like to find moments that speak to human existence and specifically to the customs and rituals of life in Tokyo.
