Jared Lim and the Beauty of Our Urban Jungle

By Ruth Dunn on May 29th 2013

Travelling to most of the major cities in the world, photographer Jared Lim has built up an impressive series of works focusing on the patterns, colors, lines and curves of our urban jungle.

From the iconic architecture of the Sydney Opera House to the geometric patterns of buildings in Japan and New York, Lim’s series ‘Urban Exploration’ showcases the photographer’s compelling ability to capture beautiful patterns, vibrant colors and striking lines.

Lim’s love of geometry, lines, curves, patterns and abstract designs, fuels his passion to capture interesting aspects of buildings and architecture.

He says:

“Since most of the places I travel to are major cities, architecture is the prevailing theme. I have loved geometry since I was a kid. Even when I was young, I loved to create repeated patterns and designs at school.”

For Lim, following your passion as a photographer and focusing on the subject that interests you most is of paramount importance.

“For me, taking pictures is rather instinctive. The facades of buildings give them
distinctive characters, like living things. I prefer to extract designs from building that tell a story rather than photographing the whole building like Rhythmic Displacement, Braille, The Non Conformist, Diagonal Path, etc…”

What subjects interest you most as a photographer?
