- Juxtapoz Magazine
A few weeks back, Radio Juxtapoz traveled to Tokyo, Japan for the RVCA World Tour, a 7-day takeover of the city that saw numerous art shows, signings, screenings, pop-ups occur in and around Shibuya. Obviously, our focus was the Beautiful Losers: Now & Then show, and it gave us a chance to talk with two of our favorite photographers: the talented and influential Ed and Deanna Templeton. Ed Templeton has been blazed across our memories as a legendary skater who was able to take his skate craft and create fine art and photography that has made him famous the world over. Deanna Templeton has been making these incredibly poetic projects for years, with her The Swimming Pool coming to mind first and foremost.
We sat down with Ed and Deanna on a steamy hot Tokyo summer day after a day of RVCA press for the couple. Our conversation went all over: how it feels to bring the Losers back together again, what an Ed shot is versus a Deanna shot, how their longtime home base of Huntington Beach may not be inspiring them anymore and what makes Tokyo a magical place to take photos.
