Nick Waplington’s first book was published in 1991, and was an instant sensation within the photography world and beyond. The 59 photographs in the original edition of Living Room documented the lives of friends, families, and neighbours on the Broxtowe housing estate in Nottingham, England, where Waplington spent years making thousand of images.

This extensive archive of unseen photographs form the basis of this new conceptual remake of the 1991 Aperture monograph, one that revisits and refashions Waplington’s iconic work from a contemporary vantage point. This new work follows the same sequencing of landscape and portrait images as the original edition - replacing each of the 59 photographs with an as-yet-unseen work from the Living Room archive, often from the same roll of film as the original image. The result is both familiar and uncanny, a vivid journey back to Thatcher’s Britain and a testament to the decades of art and life that have elapsed between then and now.

Living Room is exhibited at Hamilton's Gallery March 14 May - 25 June 2024.

This 2024 is published an edition of just 550 copies. Signed copies are available to pre-order for late April.
