During his many tours through America, Templeton (Garden Grove, California, 1972) captured skate culture with his 35 mm camera. These snapshots show Templeton's own journey as a photographer, as well as the lives of professional skateboarders who were constantly on the move, enjoying their newfound status as rock star characters and exploring new terrain to skate. There are fleeting moments with fans, authorities, one-night stands and rebellious friends.

Wire Crossed

Skateboarding is still considered – often by the skaters themselves – as a culture that opposes the established order. Skaters are troublemakers, do drugs and are lazy. These stereotypes still misunderstand skaters – and some of them don't need to be. Hence the title Wires Crossed. A statement that is often used in English when you don't understand each other well or as an insinuation that you are "out of your mind".
