Solar is one of 27 photographs at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts in a show called "Modern Fine Art Photography from the Female Gaze."
Created by Lillian Liu, the old-world series is a collection of works dating back to 2018 that fuses traditional images with digital processing to make the images “feel larger than life,” she told the Tri-City News.
Each of her pictures involves hours of storyboarding, sourcing and styling, she said, as well as editing using PhotoShop and Adobe Lightroom.
“I think sometimes, when you look at photography, you can tell it’s a woman behind the camera,” says Liu, who uses a Nikon D850 and has her master’s degree in classical piano performance from the Royal College of Music in London, England.
“The female photographer appreciates different details. The finer aspects are noticed more.”
It is Liu’s first time displaying her work at Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam); the show is up in the Leonore Peyton Salon until March 10.
Viewing times are limited due to provincial health orders.
