Camp, Ride, Skate, Repeat in NYC

Emerica Presents
Camp, Ride, Skate, Repeat…      
                     From Denver to Chicago on Emerica’s Wild Ride
Photographs by Ed Templeton

Counted as being among the new generation of protagonists of international photographic history, Ed Templeton is mounting a new photo exhibition at our downtown gallery in Emerica’s New York City showroom. “Camp, Ride, Skate, Repeat… is a collection 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.

Please join Emerica and Ed for the East Coast unveiling of Camp, Ride, Skate, Repeat… on September 21 from 8—11 p.m. in the Emerica Showroom Art Gallery in downtown, NYC.
