156pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Ed Templeton. "Wayward Cognitions" is a collection of photographs by Ed Templeton chosen from his archives spanning twenty years. Templeton selected for this volume photographs that do not fit into his usual manner of organizing by theme or subject. In past publications he has arranged his work in straightforward groupings such as Teenage Kissers, Teenage Smokers, or photographs shot from a moving. Wayward Cognitions represents the in-between moments that arise when shooting in the streets without theme or subject. "It's about looking, people watching, finding pleasure in the visual vignettes we glimpse each day," says Templeton. When those moments are removed from the context in which they were shot, dynamic stories can be told or imagined in book form. The photographs here were printed by Templeton in his darkroom; he then created the layout and design himself, building the book from scratch in his home studio". A brand new, most handsome example of the second edition in brown boards of this awesome survey published by Thomas Campbell's Um Yeah Arts additionally SIGNED by Ed Templeton.
