Jeremy Lempin

Country: France 🇫🇷

Deeply attached to human values ​​and the stories they convey, Jeremy Lempin, born in 1983, leaves no one indifferent, especially the people he meets during his reports. Whether it is to share the life of an emergency firefighter for 3 years (Time of a Lifetime), or integrate the very closed group of ultras Racing Club of Lens for 2 years (Of Blood and Gold), or spend time with the legionnaires of the unattainable 2nd Foreign Legion Regiment of paratroopers (REP), Jérémy Lempin has never stopped to observe, and to confront points of view.
His started as a photographer in the Navy, on the aircraft carrier Charles-de-Gaulle, and at the audiovisual production center of Defense (ECPAD).
He testified of crew living conditions, noticeably during the operations Agapanthe off Afghanistan, and Harmattan near the Libyan coast. He then took part in Opération Serval in Mali and Opération Sangaris in Central African Republic. Once again, he strived to keep his eyes on the human dimension. He documented soldiers daily life, engaged in precarious conditions on these war theaters. After ten years in the army and always eager for human stories, he put his sailor’s cap away, to fully endorse the photojournalist's vest.
Always in motion, this insatiable explorer does not hesitate to look beyond, to lay an indiscreet but honest eye on the facts of society he deals with, or on the social groups he integrates.
His method is long-term reportage completed by professional interviews recordings.
