Ciril Jazbec 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 received his Master’s Degree in 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. About this series, The End. Kiribati is Gone, Jazbec writes:
‘I went to Kiribati for a month last September and experienced in person what it means to be on the frontline of climate change. It really touched me and motivated me to share this story with the world. People all over the world have no idea how some communities have to deal with climate change. It is not just about rising of sea levels but also about salination (salt water killing plantations and destroying fresh water supplies), which has forced families living on the islands of Kiribati to move to Australia and New Zealand’.
