Photographer Theo Liu’s Digital Odyssey Into Fashion

Historically, fantasy and fashion have so often collided that it’s a natural evolution that our digital avatars get the same treatment in the age of Artificial Intelligence. No stranger to the digital sphere, rising photographer Theo Liu’s portfolio has seamlessly blended the realms of photography, art, technology, and boundless imagination for publications like Vogue, Dazed, Acne Paper, and D Repubblica. With a profound love for AI, virtual reality, and video games, Liu, as an artist, has been at the forefront of exploring the possibilities that emerge when these worlds unite. Drawing inspiration from modern China and the convergence of digital and physical realities, his captivating images of models like He Cong, Sora Choi, Yumi Nu, and Sherry Shi have transcended the usual limitations of fashion photography, propped up against ethereal backdrops from artists like Cai Guo-Qiang. Working with constant collaborators like Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and Haley Wollens, Liu’s unique vision and technical expertise has captured the fashion world’s attention while earning him the reputation for being a fearless creative that embraces the peculiar. Models.coms spoke to Liu in the digital matrix about his initial start in fine arts, AI’s ultimate convenience, and his inspiration drawing from dreams and video games.
