Jeremy Jeziorski holds a studio in downtown Warren, but sometimes he travels far to show us the view through his lens. Recently he was in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to document the work being done by the Pure Water for the World nonprofit organization, and the people whose lives are profoundly affected by their charitable work. PWW installs water filters in homes, orphanages, hospitals, clinics and schools, and also provide extensive education and support to people who desperately need access to clean drinking water.
From the portfolio he produced, Jeremy has provided hundreds of images - including those on view at the Crary - to PWW for use in their publicity, and also to an organization called Blue Planet Network which provides funding support to NGOs that provide this sort of assistance to populations in need.
These photos are the beginning of a series which will eventually come from other locations around the world where clean water is desperately needed. The photos at the Crary provide a visual sampling of the work being done, the people whose lives are changed.
