About the work
This limited edition, Walking out to the Sun, 2007 is from Nick Waplington's Double Dactyl series, exhibited at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2007, which explored the lofty traditions of history painting and landscape photography, as well as digital manipulation and the contemporary question of photographic reality.
About the artist
Born in Aden in 1970, Waplington is one of Britain's leading photographers and is well known for photographs of his family and friends and of places and events that he has witnessed first hand. Taken as a whole they suggest an intimate diary yet also build up to provide a picture of our times, chronicling life on the streets of East London - where the artist lives and works - or at festivals, street parties and demonstrations. His images have an arresting, cinematic quality, evoking a sense of mystery, yet also retaining a feeling of familiarity; from family life in Nottingham to the quirky charm of London's East End, Waplington documents the intimate and the everyday.
Born in Aden in 1970, Waplington often presents his works in book form and has had solo exhibitions at the Photographer's Gallery, London; Philadelphia Museum of Art and Whitechapel Gallery, London. His group shows have included Barbican London;Venice Biennale in 2001 and Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia. He has works in public collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York, V&A London and the Government Art Collection.
