Teenage Smokers was released on the occasion of Ed Templeton's exhibition, The Golden Age of Neglect at Alleged Gallery. The book features color photographs of under-age kids from around the world smoking cigarettes. Templeton does attempt to glorify or preach the ills of the vice, but rather finds smoking a thread of commonality that links all types of kids from California to South Africa to Finland. While Templeton may question their motives he does not pass judgment and wonders with a bemused eye if smoking does indeed makes you look cooler? Released in an edition of 1000 the book is very difficult to find now.
