Forest (SIGNED) By Yan Wang Preston

In Forest, photographic artist Yan Wang Preston explores the politics of recreating forests and ‘natural’ environments in new Chinese cities.

Shot over eight years from 2010-2017, Preston goes from following the developments of the transplanted old trees in Chongqing, to portraying the bizarre and wildly-coloured ecology-recovery landscapes in Haidong. On the way, a series of stories are collected and narrated, raising questions towards the complexity of urban reforestation and nature re-construction in a contemporary era.
