Self Portrait

Templeton figures 1994 was the year he started taking photography seriously."From that point on it hit me, if I was dedicated to shooting why would I stop shooting at home? So I was documenting everything. The rule was: have a camera all the time." This approach has led to some fairly explicit imagery of his wife, since the two have been together since he was 15. But while the nudity often garners the attention, it's the brutal honesty of images like this one, taken in 1995, that make the viewer squirm. (Courtesy of Roberts & Tilton, Culver City CA)
