'Our favorite new photobook discovery — staged documentary tinged with a David Lynch uneasiness'
Lensculture review

'Drenched in sunshine and suburbia, Ying Ang‘s Gold Coast is brimming with images we come to expect from Australia. Despite its sweeping aesthetic, the series is drowning in darkness, an ominous truth lying in wait in the city’s quiet streets... Ang’s slightly shifted perspective allows the cracks to bleed through, exposing a surreal and unsettling world just beyond our view.”
Feature Shoot review

'The chosen photographic language goes perfectly with what is the intent, which is to create empathy. Image after image, as in a movie, we identify ourselves with the places and characters. The scenes follow one another, rhythmically, creating a thin and constant tension, such as the blade of a knife, but without ever losing elegance.'
YET Magazine review

'…through her photographs she questions our perception of safety and danger in our closest environment and examines what images connote with those two terms.'
THIS IS PAPER Magazine review

'Ang doesn’t take us directly, à la Blue Velvet, under the manicured lawn to see the swarming, revolting bugs. Rather she lets the violence remain implicit, with reflections that disembody her subjects, and architecture that fosters their transgressions.'
CANVAS by Grolsch review
