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.
One Day, I Will portrays girls trapped in humanitarian crises dressed up to show who they want to be in the future.
