Artist Talk with Yan Wang Preston
Sat 13 May 2017, 14:00 – 15:00 BST
Hear Yan Wang Preston speak about Mother River and tell the epic stories behind the making of the work.
Mother River is a photographic odyssey along the entire Yangtze River. Made over four years, the epic project follows a simple premise: to document the 6,211km route of the river from source to delta, using a strict Y Points System to photograph every 100 kilometres. Preston travelled to the remote high Tibetan Plateau through the Three Gorges to the river’s end at Shanghai, finding and photographing sixty-three locations in incredibly diverse and often remote terrain.
Mother River is part of Views from China, a special six month programme of exhibitions and events at Impressions, taking a fresh look at Chinese culture and the long standing links between the UK and China.
