About the Artist:

Ciril Jazbec
Artist | Professional | Photography
Ciril Jazbec (1987) was born in Slovenia, which is where he first took up photography and visual storytelling. His desire to expand his horizons led him to London where he studied MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication. He is drawn towards stories that reach out and touch you, making you stop, think and take action in the midst of our ever-changing world.

Moved by the story of the disappearing islands of Kiribati, Ciril had endeavored to capture the essence of the place whilst that remains possible. Through encounters with the locals, activists and the President, Ciril addresses environmental issues and offers a testament to the spirit of the people.

Ciril is currently based in London, UK.
