Liao Jiaming (b.1992, Guangdong) obtained his BA in Journalism from Sun Yat-sen University in 2016, and his MFA in Creative Media from City University of Hong Kong in 2019. He now lives and works in Hong Kong.

He creates images using a variety of media including photography, videos, installations, performance and so on. His works explore the narratives and power dynamics of images, reflecting on issues of gender, bodies, and identity. His long-term research interest lies in the potential of novel visual narrative combining traditional method and state of the art, such as machine learning.

廖家明1992年出生於中國廣東。2016年,他從中山大學畢業并取得新聞學文學學士學位;2019年,他從香港城市大學畢業并取得創意媒體藝術碩士學位。他現時工作、生活於香港。

他使用攝影、錄像、裝置、行為藝術等媒介創作圖像。他的作品探索圖像的敘事和權力關係,並以此反思性別、身體和身份等議題。他的長期研究興趣在於結合傳統方法與如機器學習等當代技術發展,探索嶄新視覺敘事的潛力。
