With a signed print

Ed Templeton Auto Hypnosis

Auto-Hypnosis features both black-and-white and color photographs from Ed Templeton’s photo archive, exploring our existence in and around cars and car culture.

Ed Templeton Auto Hypnosis

We are inevitably tied to the automobile from birth, starting from literally being strapped against our will into car seats as children, to them becoming a symbol of freedom and autonomy as teenagers.

Ed Templeton Auto Hypnosis

Templeton’s photos explore the car as a cage, as a tool to assuage boredom, as a deadly weapon, and as a window to watch the world as you speed by.

The car is both a fetishized object and a utilitarian tool, something we live inside of and use as a prop for fashion magazines. Templeton has long used the car window as a framing device for his photography inside and out, further fetishizing the culture surrounding them.
