Ed Templeton's solo-exhibition Wires Crossed, at Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht.
The exhibition will run until 17.09.23
"In Wires Crossed, Templeton shares all aspects of his life and the lives of his friends and colleagues. "Nobody seemed bothered that I took photos." On their long tours, they explore their own boundaries, both physical and mental. The photos show the twilight zone between adolescence and adult life: jokes, broken bones, boredom, arguments and sex.
Through the detailed visual reports - just before mobiles and social media were to change society for good - Templeton gives the skateboarders a face. They are not caricatures of unruly kids, but profound personalities, searching for themselves and for their place in life, at the most spectacular locations."
