Born in Guangzhou, China. In 2015, Liang joined the Beijing-based media group Caixin Media. As a photojournalist, she covers spot news in China and reports on social minorities. Since 2018, she has been actively involved in the Magnum Foundation’s “Photography Expanded” documentary mentorship program. Her multimedia project "Beneath the Scars," which traces the traumatic memories and lives of survivors of sexual violence, reveals the truth of the damage caused by sexual violence through a mixture of third-person and first-person spoken accounts. "Beneath the Scars" received the "KG + Award 2020" Grand Prix, and for KYOTOGRAPHIE 2021 will be re-edited and shown using a new approach. In May 2020, Liang traveled to Wuhan, the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, to cover the stories of those who have lost family members to the virus. The short film she made, called “Good Morning, My Wife in Heaven,” has won the third prize winner in the Short category of the 2021 Digital Storytelling Contest.
