A Good Man's Grave Is His Sabbath

A Good Man's Grave Is His Sabbath is an unbound limited edition zine of acclaimed British photographer Nick Waplington's earliest work. The images, taken between 1979 - 1986, depict the Thatcher years when British post-punk youth were politically active and the marches and protests would quickly turn into riots. Juxtaposed throughout the gritty black and white images of the UK in the 80's are brightly colored and deeply saturated pictures from Waplington's series Surf Riot. In 1986 Waplington found himself in Huntington Beach, CA at The OP Pro surf contest where, during a bikini contest, a riot broke out. Windows were smashed, police cars and lifeguard trucks lit on fire by tan young men in surf trunks. This zine was created to be released during the opening of Waplington's exhibition of the same name, A Good Man's Grave Is His Sabbath, at Little Big Man Gallery in Los Angeles, CA which ran from November 2014 through January 2015. Published by Deadbeat Club in conjunction with Little Big Man Gallery, 2014.
