Photographs by Ed Templeton

Counted as being amongst the new generation of protagonists of international photographic history, Ed Templeton is mounting a new photo show at the Emerica Showroom in San Diego for ASR. “Camp, Ride, Skate, Repeat… is an exhibition of images taken during Emerica’s Wild Ride, a professional skateboard road trip on motorcycles through the heartland of America. In this latest series of work, Ed documents his friends on the Emerica team and the people he meets along the way, conveying an intimate picture of today’s cult of youth strongly colored by his own autobiography.

Camp, Ride, Skate, Repeat… will be on display September 8—10 in the Emerica Showroom #14A at the Actions Sports Retailer trade show in San Diego, California. Please join Emerica and Ed for the opening reception on Friday, September 8, from 6 — 9 p.m.
