Not long ago, Yan started producing the recent series Wonderwall, the main subjects of which are wall spaces – weathered, damaged, or covered with murals, while a few works are unrelated to walls. He titled the series Wonderwall – regardless of whether a wall is pictured. The photographer also interprets the title as a metaphor for change and breakthrough. “The series has just begun and can be shot anytime, anywhere. I’m highly interested in vanishing and obscure cultural and artistic heritages and I’d love to celebrate their existence in my own way.”
