A review on Yan's current exhibition 'Forest' at Side Gallery, Newcastle is published by Dave Pritchard on Corridor 8. He writes : Dedicating almost eight years (and thereby subtly counterpointing the push for ‘instant’ landscaping), British-Chinese photographer Yan Wang Preston travelled the country and documented the eye-popping real-life examples that are now drawn together in Forest. Each large-format image is freighted with hints of a sorrowful back-story, and the overall effect is at once visually sumptuous and culturally disturbing. Great art, in other words.
