On September 26, Aperture Members came together for a private visit to the studio of photographer Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao.

On September 26, Aperture Members met for a private visit to the Long Island City studio of photographer Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao.

Surrounded by vibrant images of Taiwan and New York City, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao recently hosted Aperture Members at his studio, and explained what first drew him to photography. Following the discussion, Members had an inside look into Liao’s extensive editing process, and watched as he demonstrated the specific positioning of his equipment to perfectly capture the large composite landscapes that he has become known for.

Liao also spoke about his book Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao: New York (Aperture, 2014) while Members sipped wine and flipped through not-yet-released images of his most recent trip to Asia.

Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao (born in Taiwan, 1977) first received recognition with his series Habitat 7, which was featured in the September 11, 2005 issue of The New York Times Magazine as the winner of the Capture the Times photography contest. His solo exhibition, Central Park New York – 24 Solar Terms is on view at Foley Gallery, New York, through October 15, 2017.
