Join Arcana Books for an afternoon with Ed Templeton!
December 2, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Sunday, December 2nd from 4 to 6 PM, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts as they host their longtime pal, Ed Templeton for what promises to be a stellar afternoon of good vibes, delicious libations, and holiday gift shopping!
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.
