Urban exploration by Jared Lim

Singapore-based photographer Jared Lim has a fantastic eye for architectural patterns and geometry. The series, entitled Urban Exploration, consists of photos he took while travelling to major cities and have been inspired by a love for geometry that his has since he was a kid.

Jared likes to photograph architecture, capturing the repetitive building elements on large scales and manipulating the apparent depth of his work. Without the irregular traces of human in his work it becomes hard to gauge the scale of his work, or sometimes even guess what you’re looking at. But the half-opened windows and window dressings make it clear that we are looking at the facade of a building, even if much of his work has us stuck on the outside, looking in.

“I have always loved geometry, lines, curves, pattern and abstract designs. Architecture seems like a great way to express them. My added advantage of traveling to most major cities for my work gives me great opportunities. Urban Exploration comprise of my cities shots in colors, monochrome and street photography” the artist said.

In and around modern buildings around the world, Lim has shown an intense passion to find geometry, lines, and curves but, most of all, he’s astute at finding patterns. He presentations are not only eye-catching but artistic.
