Ed Templeton – ‘Hairdos Of Defiance’

Ed Templeton – ‘Hairdos Of Defiance’
Salad Days

This new collection of photos comes from twenty years of unmediated chance encounters with individuals sporting Mohawks, beginning from Templeton’s hyper-localized backyard of Huntington Beach…

…and throughout the U.S. and Europe. Templeton‘s method of photography is a result of blending his dedication with a down-to-earth approach to his subjects, akin to collecting city space, body, and identity in the context of real estate of presence. A traditional photo show in an inventive installation, ‘Hairdos Of Defiance’ sets a scene. Its resemblance to a bedroom, complete with wall wood paneling and nontraditional hanging, positions the exhibited work in the context of its natural habitat – studios, homes – to form a deeply confessional self-portrait of the objects within. ‘Hairdos Of Defiance’ is accompanied by a catalogue published by Deadbeat Club with an introductory essay by Ed Templeton.
