It might sound dumb to say that a particular photographer “flattens space” because that’s what all photographers do… well, at least that’s what all cameras do. But some photographers are better at framing the environment around them and producing geometric compositions, like these from Jared Lim.
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.
