'1978-1979. Fuel strikes, rubbish piling up in the frozen streets... it felt like the end of times, or the end of my childhood at least. The schools closed for six weeks, and my friends and I danced to the sound of Joy Division and The Clash in my bedroom – concerts and skateparks took the place of studying. It was the ‘Winter of Discontent,’ but we were happy. A new decade began: Thatcher was in power, I was 14 years old, and I somehow got hold of my first camera.

Suddenly I felt like I had a place in the ‘do it yourself’ movement of the post-punk generation. I could take pictures wherever I went and share them with friends and try to get into a few local fanzines. That was the goal – fanzine photographer – back then in 1980 aged 14. As the years progressed, and punk gave way to electro, hip hop, and then house music all night long, I carried the camera with me always. Without thinking about the long term, almost without realizing it, I started to build an archive of the time, my time. Through art school and beyond, this has been my life: always the camera, always the music, always the politics, always the people.

This volume is a crisscrossing non-linear journey through the last 40 years. It mixes images taken ‘on the go’ with a number of smaller projects that have never seen the light of day, as well as some projects done for Artforum and some gallery-only work. Oh, and ‘Anaglypta’? It’s whatever you want it to be.' — Nick Waplington, 4.8.2020
