About The Second Pass
The Seconds Pass gathers fifteen years of photographs Ed Templeton took from inside a car, whether when he was driving or as a passenger. Therefore, those images are literally taken in the right moment, split seconds of a time and a place.
So, this book takes a look at the realities (sometimes harsh) of different urban environments. The locations Templeton captures are often impoverished and neglected. What we would call slums and ghettos. Further, the photographs are taken in nine countries, which contributes to creating a 'social fabric' of mankind.
About Ed Templeton
Ed Templeton is an American professional skateboarder, contemporary artist, and photographer. He is the founder of the skateboard company, Toy Machine, a company that he continues to own and manage. He is based in Huntington Beach, California. Templeton was inducted into the Skateboard Hall of Fame in 2016.
“Depending on what hat I’m wearing, I’m a skateboarder, an artist, or a businessman,” says Ed Templeton, who produces photographs, paintings, and drawings. He began skateboarding in 1985 and went on to found his own skateboard company and to skate professionally from the early to mid-1990s. In 1994, he picked up a camera to document the skateboarder subculture he was a part of—and began his artistic career. Though he is primarily known for his black-and-white photographs of the people and street life of Huntington Beach, Calif., his work also includes a series of intimate portraits of his wife and an understated suite of paintings focused on suburbia. As the artist explains, all of his subjects come from his own life: “Everything I’ve ever shot has just been on the path that I’ve been on, be it skating or travel or street photography.”
