Born in 1969, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert grew up in Scotland, where on his 13th birthday he received the gift of a camera. A few years later Jeremy subsequently became a UK-based freelance photographer for editorial, corporate and NGO clients. His work has appeared in magazines such as Time, National Geographic, Italian Geo, Le Figaro, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, and many others.
For over two decades Jeremy has been one of the principal photographers for Greenpeace International, undertaking assignments documenting the Japanese whaling fleet in action in the Southern Ocean, illegal logging in the rainforests of Papua New Guinea, rising sea levels in Kiribati, and more.
Between 2003-2012 Jeremy was based in Japan, where he worked in the Asia-Pacific region for clients such as Time, Newsweek, The Times, The Guardian, and Greenpeace International amongst others. In 2011-2012 he lived through and documented the Tohoku disaster comprising of the earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima nuclear crisis.
In 2012 he relocated back to Scotland, where he founded the Document Scotland photography collective. As part of this collective Jeremy has in the past ten years exhibited his photography widely including at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, in Edinburgh, Scotland; Bradford’s Impressions Gallery; Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow; and more.
In 2014 Jeremy was commissioned by the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games to be the official photographer documenting the journey and story of the Queen’s Baton Relay through the 70 countries of the Commonwealth. Then, four years later, Jeremy once again documented the journey of the Queen’s Baton from Buckingham Palace, to Gold Coast, Australia, through the Commonwealth for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
His work has taken him to over 100 countries, from Antarctica to Zambia, and his personal and commissioned work, for which he has been the recipient of photojournalism awards, has been widely published and exhibited in Europe, Asia and USA.
