Roberts & Tilton presents an exhibition of recent photographs by artist and skateboarder Ed Templeton in his fifth exhibition with the gallery. Templeton has long mined the middle ground between the public and the private, delving unreservedly into the human situation, creating photographs that are at once heartbreaking and outrageous, comical and sinister, his images, a visual litmus test of American youth culture in all its twisted luminescence. Ed Templeton Memory Foam will be on view until February 16 at Roberts and Tilton, 5801 Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

Photographer Mike Brodie, working under the moniker, The Polaroid Kidd, spent four years traveling the U.S. amassing a large body of work and an extremely unique view of the American lanscape – oft from the perceptive of boxcars and train tracks shared by runaways and disenfranchised youth. Unexpectedly, Brodie quit the medium entirely to become a car mechanic in the Bay Area. Twin Palms publishers will be releasing a critical monograph of his work entitled A Period of Juvenile Prosperity this month.
