Sunday, December 2 from 4-6 PM, Ed Templeton will be signing copies of Tangentially Parenthetical, published by Um Yeah Arts, at Arcana: Books on the Arts in Culver City.
Tangentially Parenthetical is a selection of photographs from Ed Templeton's vast street photography archive - curated, arranged, and then rearranged by the man himself. The follow up to his 2014 Um Yeah Arts survey Wayward Cognitions, Tangentially Parenthetical picks up where the latter collection ended. By combining intimate, accidental, and unconnected moments into one linear piece of work, he tells hundreds of new stories through the thoughtful arrangement of semi-related-yet-completely-unfastened imagery. "I'm out there shooting photos all the time that don't necessarily fall under any theme other than general life," says Templeton, "which is a lame title for a book." With a wink to the absurd, sandwiched between a cover of patterned parentheses and with an afterword built from his own stream-of-consciousness storytelling, Templeton delivers a visual mountain from an archive of stunning molehills in which the images are carefully chosen, shuffled by hand, and laid out with the dueling impulses of wonder and wit.
Join Arcana Sunday, December 2nd from 4–6PM as they again host their longtime pal, the enduring and endearing Ed Templeton, for what promises to be a stellar afternoon of good vibes, delicious libations, and holiday gift shopping! If you are unable to attend but would like to purchase a copy of Tangentially Parenthetical signed by Mr. Templeton, please order from Arcana's website here, or by phone at 310-458-1499.
