Louis Lim is an Australian-based photographer whose work explores the diversity in human conditions, specifically those that are under-represented in mainstream media. With a keen interest on light, Lim’s practice focused on non-fictional visual storytelling and conceptual photographic portraits with a collaborative methodology.

Lim’s work has been exhibited in several Australia galleries and presented internationally. He was awarded the Queensland Festival of Photography Portrait Prize 2012 and was shortlisted as a finalist in 2017 Churchie National Emerging Art Prize, 2016 Toowoomba Biennial Emerging Artist Award, 2015 Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award, and the 2015 Head On Portrait Prize. His work is part of the permanent collection at Gold Coast City Gallery and the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. He has also completed an artist residency at the Royal Children Hospital School and Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital School in 2015, where he worked with children to present photographic stories of the unique school environments.

Motivated by his curiosity about people and photography, Lim has worked as a facilitator for Access Arts to a photography group – Camera Wanderers, mentoring a group of differently-abled photographers. He currently works as a freelance photographer, a coordinator at Liveimage (a photographic printing studio), and teaches Photography at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
