Photo exhibition "One day I will" portraits the dreams of children


It has been six years since photographer Vincent Tremeau started asking children the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?” whenever he was on assignment overseas. Mostly aged between 6 and 18 years old, the children featured at the exhibition have dressed up to show us who they want to be when they grow up, using costumes and props from their immediate surroundings.

By tapping into each child’s vision for the future, we get a unique glimpse of their current circumstances and challenges - and all this you can see on the photo exhibition "One day I will".

Combining an artistic approach with a documentary purpose, the images highlight the crucial role of education for boys and girls in humanitarian crises, for securing their safety and future opportunities. They are a testimony to the vulnerability, resilience and creativity of today’s youth and how they can shape the future.

The exhibition was produced as a result of a collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Estonia and the Juhan Kuus Documentary Photo Centre. It will be open until 30 June.
