Retrospective collection of black-and-white photographs. Limited Edition of 2000 copies. Published as a hardcover original only. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Ed Templeton: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial cloth boards with titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Ed Templeton. Text by Stijn Huijts. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Ed Templeton's "Wayward Cognitions". His most serious and most beautiful street photography images, an homage-of-sorts to his artistic idol, Robert Frank. "Chosen from his archives spanning 20 years, Templeton selected photographs that do not fit into his usual manner of organizing by theme or subject. Represents the in-between moments that arise when shooting in the streets without theme or subject" (Publisher's blurb). "Dispenses with categorization and instead culls a loose collection of images from his 20 years of travel as a professional skateboarder and artist. Capture the kinds of fleeting moments that are the hallmarks of classic street photography" (The New York Times). "It's about looking, people watching, finding pleasure in the visual vignettes we glimpse each day. When those moments are removed from the context in which they were shot, dynamic stories can be told or imagined in book form" (Ed Templeton). An absolute "must-have" title for Ed Templeton collectors. This copy is one of the Second Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Copyright Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the last page by Ed Templeton. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Templeton enclosed his signature within an original drawing of a human figure. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the Second Limited Edition with original drawing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Templeton did NOT sign most copies of the Limited Edition. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ED TEMPLETON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0985361123. $100.00
