Hello everyone. This is @bloodypixy and this week I will be sharing some photos from my project "Memphis Tennessee". The photos were taken when I first went to US to study photography. The scenary there influenced me a lot on how I perceive color and light. #photoworks_uk #pixyliao #instagramtakeover #IGTakeover #photography
Liao holds an MFA in photography from the University of Memphis.
