“Beauty is not seen, but felt.”

~ Kelvin Lim

I am an ordinary person with an extraordinary job.

My job is to tell stories through photography, writing, and art.  Some stories are set in reality – stories of friendship, marriage, innocence, and love.  Others are created from dreams – dreams of nostalgia, sensuality, secret fantasies, and imaginary worlds.

What truly inspires me, however, are the people behind these stories.  Real people – from stunning beauties to the common passers-by, from wealthy businessmen to the odd-job worker, from newly-weds to wrinkled old couples, from newborns tasting life, to the terminally ill.

Real people, like you and I.

It doesn’t matter if we’re pretty or ugly, rich or poor, famous or misunderstood.  Beneath what everyone sees on the outside, there is something within us that is human and real.  Everyone is beautiful in their own way, if only we take the time and heart to listen.

This is the inspiration behind my work.  I am humbled by the people who share a part of themselves with me.
