Deanna Templeton is a Southern California based street photographer and documentarian whose early work often featured images of female youth culture juxtaposed next to excerpts from her diary when she was a teenager. Over the years, Deanna’s work has achieved legendary status due to her unflinching honesty and her intimate relationship with her subjects. Her latest series, The Swimming Pool is a photographic essay that departs from her usual style to offer an expressive, intimate view of the human form underwater. The series was born after an impromptu nude swimming-pool shoot of husband and artist Ed Templeton, which spurred an eight-year journey in the study of light, expression and the enigma of water. Deanna was interviewed on June 13, 2005 in Huntington Beach, CA.
