Nick Waplington. The Indecisive Memento

Nick Waplington’s fifth book features documentary images from his recent travels around the world. Aiming to reflect the honest aspirations of young people whose dreams have become stylized by the mass media, the photographer travelled from Sao Paulo, Montevideo and Buenos Aires to Cuba, Easter Island and finally Australia. Capturing the transitional existence of everyday life through a fusion of photography, writing and collected imagery, this work openly identifies the idiosyncrasies and contradictions of the West and confronts the modern stereotypes of living in the shadow of First World capitalism.
