About the American photographer, Deanna TEMPLETON (b. 1969, in Huntington Beach, CA)

Deanna TEMPLETON is an American artist working primarily in photography. At the age of 15, she started to photograph the Los Angeles punk scene. Early in her photography career, she traveled with her husband, Ed TEMPLETON, and other professional skateboarders on their international tours, documenting the scene. Her photographs from that period embody a unique perspective of skateboarding and skateboard culture because they reflect a female perspective of a sport which, at the time, was documented and dominated by men.
