About The Moon Has Lost Her Memory
In The Moon Has Lost Her Memory Deanna Templeton chains together a selection of images from her archive. Therefore, this book puts together over 16 years of work by the photographer, focused on people and their night activities. Also, it is accompanied by fragments of 'Rhapsody on a Windy Night', a poem by T.S. Eliot.The result is complete harmony between the T.S. Eliot's words and the images of nocturnal life. Lights partially revealing darkness, men drinking in bars, he glow of the moon, blurred legs walking down the pavement. Templeton's sensitive eyes peer into the night of different cities while their inhabitants are not looking at her.
About Deanna TempletonDeanna Templeton (1969, Huntington Beach) is an American artist and photographer. Templeton started pursuing photography at the age of 15 after her mum gifted her a camera. Soon, she started using that camera to explore and document the local LA punk scene. Early in her photography career, Templeton traveled with her husband (Ed Templeton) and other professional skateboarders on their international tours. There she would document the scene. Accordingly, Templeton’s photographs from that period embody a unique perspective of the skateboard culture. Besides, they reflect a female perspective of a sport largely dominated by men. In 2007, she published the book Your Logo Here; the photographs capture young girls offering their bodies to their skateboard idols for them to sign and for skate companies to “brand” with spray paint templates. Photographs from Your Logo Here culminated in an exhibition titled Scratch My Name On Your Arm, which traveled throughout Europe in 2009; drawing inspiration from the punk scene that inspired her as a teenager, Templeton appropriated her exhibition’s title from a Smith’s song.
