Deanna Templeton is an American artist and photographer.
Her experience with photography started in the late eighties with her interest in the punk-rock scene and concerts which she started documenting. Having met skater Ed Templeton - her husband since 1991 - at the age of eighteen, she also documented the crowds around the skateboarding events, championships or street meetups.
Her photgraphy work is mainly portraiture, and very oriented towards the teenagers and youth. Living in Huntington Beach, in South California, the body is also an element very present in her work (beach activities, tattos, etc.) which shows a general interest for underground cultures. She has also developped personal projects such as her series "Swimming Pool" of underwater portraits.
Among the photobooks Deanna Templeton has published: "Your Logo Here" (P.A.M., 2007), "Scratch my Name on Your Arm" (Schunck, 2011), "The Swimming Pool" (Nazraeli, 2016), "Contemporary Suburbium" - a joint project with Ed Templeton (Nazraeli Press, 2017) and "What She Said" (Mack, 2021).
