Capturing the Textile-Like Beauty of Repetitive Architecture

New, 1 comment

For his Urban Exploration series, Singapore-based photographer Jared Lim shoots buildings devoid of context, depicting their patterns as crisp as a tangram puzzle and consistent as a textile. Much like that photographer Michael Wolf, who composes shots of Hong Kong's sterile, dense living, Lim captures his subjects as tapestries—regimented, but also somehow artistic. "I have always loved geometry, lines, curves, pattern and abstract designs," Lim, who travels all over the world working for a tourism company, told fellow photographer Chris Jarvis in an interview on the latter's blog. "Architecture seems like a great way to express them." Above: his Origami, a building in Melbourne, Australia. More below.
