One of Britain’s leading contemporary photographers, Nick Waplington is well known for photographs of his family and friends, of places and events that he has witnessed first hand. Taken as a whole these suggest an intimate diary but also 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. Most recently, he has been exploring photography through constructed and manipulated images, as well as those found in internet photo-sharing sites. For the Whitechapel, he has created an installation at the Gallery and artworks on display in local bars, cafes, shops and businesses.
