'As the subject of photographer Nick Waplington's captivating lens, the town's name takes on a profundity that defies its frivolous origin. His portraits and landscape shots follow the bizarre yet somehow ordinary lives of the inhabitants of "T or C", as well as paying homage to the great pioneers of American photography such as Edward Weston and Walker Evans. These stunning yet commonplace photographs were shot over a period of ten years, during which Waplington revisited the town many times. Drawn together in a book for Phaidon, 'Truth or Consequences' has been hailed as his most extensive and enthralling study since 'Living Room' ...' Dazed and Confused 'The book captures some genuinely affecting moments ... while also offering generous tributes to past masters of American photography.' Time Out 'Nick Waplington has captured the combined weirdness and ordinariness of the everyday, the disused and the down-at-heel. Like a wide-screen road-movie, images of American popular culture collide.' Evening Standard


Nick Waplington has taken photographs in and around Truth or Consequences, a small town situated in New Mexico, for nearly ten years. Typical and unremarkable in many ways, the town's extraordinary name derives from a radio quiz show to which the town and its residents have been inextricably linked ever since the show came to town in 1950. Waplington shows us the town behind the name, the lives of its people and the landscape they live in while at the same time constructing a personal tribute to American photography, paying homage to the great pioneers of the genre like Edward Weston and Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander and Paul Strand.

Not much truth here unfortunately. 30. Juni 2002
Von Robin Benson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The small town of Truth or Consequences, just down the road aways from Albuquerque on I25 in New Mexico, first attracted the attention of British photographer Nick Waplington in 1993. This collection of one hundred and thirty-five color photos are the result of several visits to the town and surrounding area over the years. When I first got the book I had a quick flick through the pages and I was impressed with the color quality and the subject matter.

However, I have now looked through the photos several times and I find the whole selection disappointing, I don't think there are more than fourteen that are worth looking at again and again. The sort of photos that have a strong composition (essential) depth, good color, and subject matter that draws the viewer into the photo. Far too many of the rest are no better than snaps, taken quickly and then onto the next exposure. Annoyingly eighteen are devoted to some kind of parade in the town and there are at least two that any professional photographer would probably reject at first viewing when they came back from the lab.

The back of the book has nineteen photos Nick Waplington took on a journey to Las Vegas in November 2000. Nothing special here except for a stunning shot of a cowboy statue surrounded by buildings, street furniture and signs (ONE WAY, PARKING, ENTRANCE etc). This one shot has the feel of the great FSA photos of the thirties and it is a pity that the majority of the rest in the book did not show the same quality as this one and really show what Truth or Consequences was like.

The book starts with a twelve page introduction by writer John Slyce about the town and the photos and it occurred to me after reading it that the writing is as uninteresting as most of the images, for example... "It is through triangulated acts of some ironic quotation that `Truth or Consequences' gains critical force", or "Art today, even in its most original state, is a looped cycle of sampled and reconfigured regurgitation with little or nothing new save the prices to be established at auction"... Hmmm.

One final point concerns the books production, for some bizarre reason there are no captions (or page numbers either) to any of the photos. Surely a mistake when many of them show events, people and places that any reader would naturally ask ... "What's going on here?". Unfortunately we'll never know!
