1980 - Beijing

Liu Xiaofang

Liu Xiaofang (b.1980) is a graduate of the Department of Photography, Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Liu creates photographs with a dream-like aesthetic that draws upon her memories of childhood and poetic contemplation of the world around her. Her delicate and seemingly utopian sceneries blur the boundaries between the real and the imagined, leaving her audience to question their own assumptions about truth and reality.

In 2010, she was among the select few to be named Most Promising Contemporary Photographers by Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland; and participated in the travelling exhibition reGeneration2: Tomorrow’s Photographers Today. Liu has exhibited in group shows worldwide including China, Japan and Switzerland.
