Award-winning photographer-storyteller William Yang returns to a motherland he never knew for his latest show China. Through video and photos, Yang takes audiences from the streets of Beijing to the sacred mountain Huang Shan; from a wild night in a Mongolian herdsman’s hut to the apartments of ordinary Chinese a few months after Tienanmen incident.

Yang’s wryly sensitive perspective, eye for details and arresting images come together in China as explores the personal story of an Australian-born Chinese who is a stranger in his homeland, whilst also questioning the meaning of culture,of heritage and of belonging.
