Like Water is Lim’s photography series that captures an actual place and the water that flows in it, representing the cycle of people’s lives. Two seemingly disparate concepts are brought together in a single image both in terms of subject matter and form. The strong sense of geometry of the buildings in Like Water #2 are juxtaposed with the organic forms of water that flow through them.

Regarding his process, Lim takes his photos of the background onsite, travelling across the world to capture these urban locations. He then takes the isolated photos of the water in an studio, after which he superimposes the images on to each other using Photoshop.
