Drinking the Kool-Aid and Slaming It

23 April 2010, 01.52 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

Ed Templeton has taken Europe by storm this month and finished his trek overseas with his final show, Drinking the Kool-Aid. Emerica and Slam City Skates hosted an exhibition of Ed Templeton photography at the Elms Lester Painting Rooms in London from April 6 – 17.

Drinking The Kool-Aid reflects Templeton’s punk rock, DIY asthetic with a series of personal photos. The material not only delves into his “personal relationships, but also the outside streets and the activities surrounding the skate culture” to reveal a “phantasmagoria of images contextualizing a broader vision of contemporary youth culture.”

To go along with the display, Ed worked with his long-time sponsor, Emerica and his skateboard company, Toy Machine to create these special products for the Emerica take-over of Slam City.
