TO ED TEMPLETON
BY JACOPO BENASSI
JB: How do your works begin? Is there a structure, a project or do you improvise and throw yourself into the work?
ET: The structure is very loose. I essentially take a camera whenever I leave the house and so whenever I’m out in the world I’m working. It’s all improvised and whatever unfolds in front of me. Almost all of my work is made in this way.
JB: How do you look at photographs by other authors? Do you search for something that relates to your way of looking at things or you rather search for something completely different?
ET: I love collecting and studying photobooks. So I’m very interested in other artists work. I do like work very different from mine. But I’d have to say I tend to like documentary and street photography best.
JB: What kind of music do you listen to?
ET: I grew up on punk music. And love sorta noisy bands like Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Fugazi, you know, metal, punk, and noise bands. But also stuff like Dylan, The Smiths…
