Urban jungles can be indifferent and cold, but Jared Lim has a different perspective. His architectural photos are bright and alive. Regardless of whether the image is complex and kaleidoscopic or simple and geometric, each image contains a captivating structure. Indeed he must make the architects who designed these edifices sing with joy. Click through the images above to see more of Jared’s work.

Jared was kind enough to indulge me with a few Q&A’s:

As I understand it, you started shooting while traveling for work. What is this job that takes you all over the world?

JL: Actually this is a sticky question, just say I work for the travel industry and that gives me the opportunity to travel to most major cities frequently.

What drew you to photograph architecture?

JL: I have always loved geometry, lines, curves, pattern and abstract designs. Architecture seems like a great way to express them.

Do you seek out your locations, or simply happen upon them?

JL: I do not really seek out my locations. These locations are the cities that I happened to be in for my work.

Tell us a little bit about your creative process, both during shooting and in post.

JL: I try to get my composition and lighting right during shooting so as to minimize the amount of post correction work. Post work mainly involves correction of lens distortion and perspective, because I am rather meticulous in my composition. I love strong colors and most of my work reflects that.

Any tips for shooting architecture?

JL: 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…

Anything else you’d like to add?

JL: Like Chase Jarvis said, “Aim to be different, not better than everybody else.” The whole idea in photography is just to present your own point of view. So be experimental and play around.

Yeah I love that principle. Also with regard to doing personal projects to land new jobs. Basically the mechanism is: in order to become succesful, you just need to do what you like doing most: playing around, being different and doing personal stuff. How can it be that good :) Would’ve been a bummer if you’d have to be a conformist and kiss everyone’s asses to become a succesful photographer.

““Aim to be different, not better than everybody else.” The whole idea in photography is just to present your own point of view. So be experimental and play around.” Couldn’t agree more. Great work too!
