Manu Gim is a fine-art photographer in search of self-expression through
Horizons, Lights, and Time.

Having been fascinated with art and history for as early as his memory reaches,
he had followed an essentially lifelong path of an art historian,
studying History and Classical Studies at UCLA,
and Art History at Sorbonne University.

Upon realizing that such passion derived not only from an academic curiosity,
but much more so from an instinctive desire and need for creative self-expression,
he transitioned into photography, and graduated from
Magnum Photos x Spéos School of Photography's
Creative Documentary and Photojournalism course,
ultimately discovering his visual language in abstract landscapes.
