Nationality: Chinese
Born: 1969

When he works in colour, the tones are awash in sepia or a doctored saturation that comments on the nostalgic nature of his topics – his Peking Opera series in particular reflects this.

Liu’s background is not rooted in arts . After majoring in optical engineering at the Beijing (…)

Alexis Pichot
Nationality: French
Born: 1980
In 2011, I made the bold decision to redirect my professional life into my self-guided passion, photography. I worked as an interior designer in Paris for more than ten years.

At night, light and space are my sources of inspiration, experimentation and confrontation - but above all, of fulfilment.
