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. 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. 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.

Ed Templeton is an American artist/photographer whose work reflects human behavior with emphasis on youth subcultures, religious affectation, and suburban conventions using a cinéma vérité approach and embracing chance encounters. Templeton is a respected cult figure in the subculture of skateboarding, a two time world-champion, and Skateboarding Hall of Fame inductee. He is best known for his photographic books, zines, and multi-media exhibitions. His work has been shown in museums worldwide including, Museum of ContemporaryArt, Los Angeles; International Center of Photography, New York; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; S.M.A.K. Museum, Belgium; Bonnefanten Museum, The Netherlands; Kunsthalle, Vienna, Austria; Pier 24 , San Francisco.
