ONLINE TALK: Nature and Natural: Photographer Yan Wang Preston discusses her series ‘Forest’

Wednesday 28 July, 6:30pm

Book tickets


Join us for an online talk with photographer Yan Wang Preston interviewed by our director of photography Dr Julie Bonzon.

In the photographic project ‘Forest’, Yan Wang Preston spent eight years (2010-2017) investigating the politics of recreating forests and the ‘natural’ environment in new Chinese cities. She started this project in Chongqing, by following the developments of the transplanted old trees, the concrete city and its people, documenting the changes, dramas and lives in the city. She then extended the project to Haidong, capturing the bizarre and wildly-coloured ecology-recovery landscapes. Wang Preson’s work raises questions about the complexity of urban reforestation and nature re-construction in the contemporary era.
