Lim Yaohui works at the Singapore Botanic Gardens on weekdays and takes photographs on weekends. His current job involves planting trees and taking care of the plants under his care. He dreams of being a full time photographer when he feels that he has done his part for Mother Earth.
As a sensitive observer who makes immaculate attention to details, he hopes to use photography as a medium to help those who do not have the opportunity to express themselves.
He enjoys sharing his expertise on photography with like-minded peers and has been actively involved in photography mentorship projects like Youths With Cameras with The Choice Initiative and InsideOut with Migrant Voices.
His works have won several national and international accolades, including Honorable Mentions in the International Photography Awards (IPA) in 2008 and 2010.
