Ed Templeton: Wayward Cognitions

Dec 17, 2014 8:15PM
"Wrightwood, USA" (2008) is reproduced from Ed Templeton: Wayward Cognitions, launching with a book signing this Thursday, December 18, from 6-8PM at the MOCA store, Grand Avenue, Los Angeles. In his essay, Stijn Huijts writes, Wayward Cognitions can be seen as a collection of pictures that express wonder about an everyday reality that, as a Dutch author once remarked, is actually much crazier than anything the wildest imagination could dream up. It is clear that Templeton has developed an unerring photographic eye for recognizing those un-everyday qualities of the everyday. It is a sort of wonder that is typical of the view of artists, as well as of the way young children approach the world."
