Shadows and light give form to Jeremy Snell’s atmospheric images, which nod to both the beauty of the lakes and rivers and the humanitarian issues that plague it.

Jeremy Snell is a cinematographer and humanitarian photographer. Though originally from Hawaii, he spent much of his youth living throughout Asia. He has photographed numerous campaigns for NGO’s to help bring an end to the world water crisis and modern day slavery.

“Shadows, more than anything, reveal the light; you can see the light in people’s eyes and their faces,” says Snell. There is a sense of tranquillity but also tension, which runs through the frames; an uneasy quietness. And the effect is amplified by the artificial lighting, which Snell often employed, switching between observational images, and more staged shots, for which he collaborated with his subjects. “I wanted to raise awareness about the humanitarian issues in the area but also celebrate the beauty of the people there,” says Snell.
