Nick Waplington – The Living Room
Nick Waplington’s Living Room is a project over 15 years he photographed families he encountered in a alternative view, Waplington himself puts it, “the grainy, downtrodden, black-and-white interpretation of working-class life”. The project is a fantastic raw body of work that shows a certain type of life in and certain time to an audience he are likely from a different situation themselves.
This project just like the work of Richard Billingham is a Kodak Moment but again not the sort of moment you would expect to see within a family album. Though all of us can relate to this as we probably have images similar in some sort of way in our own photo collections from when we were young or when our parents were younger.
