Regarded as one of the architects of modern skateboarding, Templeton was born and raised in the belly of Los Angeles and was a regular at the Vans skateboard park in Orange, California. He has been a professional skater for over 10 years, an absolutely unheard-of length of time in a world that regularly eats its own due to the commonality of injury and high burn-out rates. Throughout the years, Templeton has kept a camera close by, documenting this eminently American subculture, producing a body of work that remains true to its subject matter. This is not a casual observer bent on imposing outside values, but rather a hard-core insider creating images based on familiarity and passion. Described by some as a Larry Clark-of-the-90s, Templeton's work deserves the same amount of attention here in the States as it currently enjoys in Japan and Europe, where this book originated.
