Chien-Hsiang is a master when it comes to creating captivating photographs. His images leave questions for his audience to answer and invites them to interpret every frame and scene. While some photographers choose color to get their points across, Chien-Hsiang makes use of grain, texture, and contrast. Not everything about life is pretty, why should his photographs differ?

In an artistic perspective, Chien-Hsiang takes photographs in a distinctive style. He uses different framing techniques to highlight his subjects, as well as grain and texture to add more drama to an already dark series of photographs. It wouldn’t be far off to say that one can think that Chien-Hsiang’s photographs are a surrealistic reflection of life as he sees it.

The photos in this article are included in a series called Scenery of Life by Liu Chien-Hsiang, curated by artist Chang Chao-Tang.
