Juxtapoz Magazine – Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, ep 20: Ed and Deanna Templeton on What Makes the Tokyo Streets So Magical

A few weeks back, Radio Juxtapoz traveled to Tokyo, Japan for the RVCA World Tour, a 7-day takeover of the city that saw numerous art shows, signings, screenings, pop-ups occur in and around Shibuya. Obviously, our focus was the Beautiful Losers: Now & Then show, and it gave us a chance to talk with two of our favorite photographers: the talented and influential Ed and Deanna Templeton. Ed Templeton has been blazed across our memories as a legendary skater who was able to take his skate craft and create fine art and photography that has made him famous the world over. Deanna Templeton has been making these incredibly poetic projects for years, with her The Swimming Pool coming to mind first and foremost.

The Daily Edit – The Fringe Podcast: Shaughn and John – A Photo EditorA Photo Editor

Shaughn and John: As a photo team we’ve realized that working together in the same physical space helps us to make the most of the days we aren’t on set shooting.  Although we both live in the LA area there is about 50 miles separating us, which means at least 2 hours of driving per day.  Like a lot of people these days the way we cope with the long drive is by listening to an insane amount of podcasts.  Whether it be true crime, investigative, daily news or interview style, we love being absorbed in stories while we commute.  What began as a fun way of keeping ourselves occupied evolved into a conversation about what a Shaughn and John podcast would look like.  We agreed that the best idea was to create a podcast that matched the style and approach of our personal documentary projects.  Whether it is through photos, video and now audio we love telling the stories of fringe groups and subcultures.

Martha’s work, including the seminal Subway Art and four decades of photographing the evolution of one of the world’s largest art movements, has also connected multiple generations to the powerful global art form. In many ways, Martha is the glue that holds these generations together, both a rite of passage for artists but an active and vital artist for the movement as well.

Robert Cohen’s photography career spans about 30 years, notably working at The Commercial Appeal in Memphis and now as a staff photographer at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. His series on suburban homelessness was named a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in feature photography, but he is also known for his work covering the 2014 protests in Ferguson, Missouri, after the death of Mike Brown.

Thanks for the 1720 memories

The real estate listing for our soon to be former home at 1720 5th Avenue in Moline reads as follows; “Current Daily Dispatch Property. Now available for purchase. Over 53,000 SF of office and warehouse space……Will be vacated within the next 120 days.’ Well those 120 days are just about up, so we decided to gather six current and former Dispatch/Argus photographers to take a hilarious and heartfelt trip down memory lane about life at 1720. 

As for our new home, the Jefferson’s theme said it best – “Well we’re movin’ on up to the east side.”  We will be moving into a beautiful new building just down the road in East Moline. But before we go forward, we take a look back. We hope you in enjoy the show. Our panel includes Todd Welvaert, John Greenwood, Gary Krambeck, Paul Colletti, Todd Mizener and on the phone from Kansas City, Dan Videtich.

No End In Sight

British journalist John Cantlie has been a prisoner of ISIS for more than four years. Throughout his captivity, he’s been forced to act as a sort of warped foreign correspondent, extolling the virtues of the group in propaganda videos. With every appearance, he looks weaker and gaunter. In this special hour, we consider how Cantlie’s plight is a window into the challenges of reporting on Syria, and why the world’s tangled policy on hostages means that some live to tell the tale, and others don’t. 

The Twitter storm

It was a week that started with a fatal fire and ended with 6 high school football players taking a knee during the National Anthem. Our photos from both events garnered reaction on Twitter.
