About The Wedding
So, “Over the course of four years, Waplington became intimately acquainted with two large, working-class families residing in a municipal housing estate in Nottingham, England. The resulting book, Living Room, proved the photographer had achieved an entirely unself-conscious relationship with his subjects. Five years later, Waplington is still shooting.
He revisits his Nottingham friends in The Wedding, a colorful, lively visual narrative also with the mesmerizing flow of a soap opera. Times have changed in one of the living rooms. The kids are older and Mum is on the verge of a new marriage. With the wedding as a centerpiece, Waplington plunges into to midst of a communal group whose upbeat life-style seems able to overcome all obstacles.”
Working with Waplington, the cuting-edge British writer Irvine Welsh, author of Acid House, contributes an essay illuminating the social and also political context for Waplington’s work. Waplington also provides a personal introduction chronicling the evolution of the “Living Room” project, his intensely close relationship with his extended family, and the nine years he has spent photographing them.
