The artist and photographer Nick Waplington was born 1970 in Aden. The eldest of three children, he traveled extensively during his childhood as his father worked as a scientist in the nuclear industry. He studied art at Worthing Art College, Trent poly and The Royal College in London. He currently is living in Jerusalem, Israel. 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 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. He is noted for his conceptual approach to photography.
