Guoman Liao knows how to capture the timeless conundrum of a photographed portrait. He knows how to play with the ambiguity, how to tell it in pictures, through September nostalgic design, lights and mysterious shadows, poses, creating surreal atmospheres and elusive.
In fact, Guoman captures what most elusive of the portrait has to return it even more elusive and in a minimalist environment where very few adjustments on some photographic variables trigger the essential elements of a story in pictures.
Interested in art since childhood, Guoman wins in six years a painting competition in China, the country where he was born and raised. His passion for photography came into being relatively late, at the university, where he studied sociology.
Today, at 28 years, the artist has transformed the use of the medium, from documentary to expressive, with art photography and fashion.
His inspirational leaders are Guy Bourdin, Deborah Turbeville and Irving Pen, which radically affect his personal style, delicate, elusive and sweetly dark.
