As far as living legends go in the world of extreme sports, Ed
Templeton is up there with the best of 'em. Apart from being a
succesful pro-skater and businessman (his skateboard company Toy
Machine has existed since 1993!), he's also been a longtime
creative spirit. An exhibit of his most recent work has brought him
to Antwerp. Couldn't let this one slip past and tracked the man
down for a quick portrait.
After I had shot a few snaps to check the light, he opened his
jacket, revealing a beautifull Leica M6. Obviously sharing a
passion for photography, I suggested this shot to him. I'm happy he
Thanks a million Ed, sorry I couldn't make it to your opening.
Let's hope next time you visit our crazy city you'll be rolling on
a Toy Machine...
