Phaidon and Artspace are proud to present a new limited edition photographic print by contemporary British photographer and artist Nick Waplington.

Untitled (Superman and Rabbit), 1989 (2023) is a limited-edition colour print taken from Waplington’s influential Living Room series, shot between 1986–1990 on the Broxtowe housing estate in Nottingham, England, where his grandfather lived. Set against a backdrop of economic downturn within Thatcher’s Britain, the project documented the daily lives of several families, focusing on unguarded moments of joy and human interaction.
