Brooklyn-based, Shanghai-raised Pixy Liao explores relationships—specifically expectations of Chinese women within heterosexual couplings—through her striking photography. “I started to experiment with this relationship. I would set up all kinds of situations for Moro and I to perform in the photos. My photos explore the alternative possibilities of heterosexual relationships,” she pens in Experimental Relationship Vol. 1. The book, which won the Juror’s Special Mention of Aperture at the Paris Photo Book Awards, is just part of her ongoing Experimental Relationship project.
