About Other Edens
So in his first body of work, Living Room, British photographer Nick Waplington found the chaotic, multi directional, often joyous choreography, in the everyday lives of two working class families. Living in council houses in Nottingham. In Other Edens, his global series of panoramic images. Waplington imposes his body as a physical and also metaphorical presence in the landscape. The omnipresent artist - head shaven, and also naked so as to deny the possibility of locating him in time - appears in evocative scenes ranging from Naples to Easter Island. From the Peace Park in Hiroshima then to the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou.
The book's text, by renowned author Marianne Wiggins, also includes an interview with Waplington about his extraordinary working methods and the far flung locations he has chosen to photograph. Invoking the spirits of Friedrich Nietzsche, Eugene lonesco, as well as Peter Pan. Wiggins provides a brisk and also insightful counterpoint to Waplington's exceptional imagery. Other Edens integrates personal, cultural, and comic visions to then present an idiosyncratic view of a planet in flux.
