A year later, he became passionate about macro photography, concentrating on the tiny world that’s all around us, the small places we don’t often see or take time to really discover.

Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
