Portrait Of Miranda July

As an artist, Templeton has a natural home in Los Angeles where peers like the filmmaker and performance artist Miranda July live. But he's consciously avoided leaving Orange County, for reasons even he doesn't quite understand. "I drive up there so much it' ridiculous," he admits. "All the photo labs I work with are up there and a lot of my friends through art and skateboarding live up there. But it's a healthy distance. The art world can be weird. I'll take the skater kids any day." (Courtesy of Roberts & Tilton, Culver City CA)
