When I Grow Up documents the hopes of young people affected by humanitarian crises who are struggling to grow up in a world where their rights are regularly denied or abused.

Aged between 6-18 years old, the children and youths are photographed dressing up in the outfits of the adults they want to become. The photos highlight the vulnerability and also the great energy of today’s youth and how they can shape the future.

  • Vincent Tremeau

    Vincent Tremeau, (b. 1984), is a French photographer. Since studying law, he has undertaken several missions as a humanitarian worker in crisis-affected countries.

    From 2014, Tremeau has been committed to pursuing work as an independent photographer, and started documenting several humanitarian crises across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Combining an artistic approach with a documentary intent, he started his One Day, I Will project with young people.

    By tapping into the childrens’ own vision of their future, he offers the audience a unique glimpse into their current circumstances and challenges, and a view into what tomorrow’s world might look like.
    The series has been featured in National Geographic, CNN, PBS, and exhibited around the world from New York to Tokyo, Berlin, Geneva, and Washington DC.
