Guo was born in Yongchun, Fujian province, in 1982. He graduated from the Department of Mechanics at Nanchang Hangkong University in 2005.
In 2002, he started working on the narratives concerning the “space” and social relationships constructed around such space. Guo takes “space” as both his primary subject and medium. When he attempts to depict or use a space, he tends to generate a series of questions, which emerge from personal inquiries and end up examining social phenomena.
Guo’s work was exhibited in many photo festivals and museums, such as: Pingyao International Photography Festival, Pingyao, China (2009); The Second Beijing Photo Biennial, CAFA Museum, Beijing, China (2015) and so on. He was selected as one of the TOP20 China Cutting-edge Contemporary Photographer, 2015. He was listed in The Three Shadows Photo Award & New Talent Award, 2016.
He currently lives and works in Xiamen, Fujian.
