Item description for Double Dactyl by Nick Waplington...

Double Dactyl accompanies a solo exhibition
of the same name at the Whitechapel Gallery,
One of Britain s leading contemporary
photographers, Waplington is known for
photographing British social scenery and his
life and close circle of friends and family in
East London, where he lives and works.
In Double Dactyl he goes one stage further,
referencing the grand traditions of history
painting, classical mythology and landscape
This new work also explores notions of
photographic reality, by working withconstructed and manipulated images taken
from his own large format photographs.
The title Double Dactyl is derived from the
Greek word meaning finger, but also meaning
a name of two words which have three
syllables each, as in Nich-o-las Wap-ling-ton.
Double Dactyl features 56 colour
reproductions of this new body of work, its
surreal and often subtle use of manipulation
confirming Waplington s idiosynchratic
approach to contemporary photographic
