Sold out practically on release. “UK – between 1979 and 1984 when a storm of punk music swept across the country. Young Nick Waplington, bombarded by such things as politics, women, photos, and records, was eager to understand the world, as well as himself. A deceased father who used to work in the nuclear industry, the countless records he was crazy over, fragments of black & white and color photos, the beautiful forest, the blackened sea of Britain. His distant memories link together in the mind of the viewer. A form of expression only possible through a media called photobook.” Brilliant 3 volume set chronicling Waplington’s youth. Photographs, scraps, records, flyers and ephemera. A British youth culture masterpiece.
