The project

Just One Inch of Water was an assignment with three award-winning photographers, spanning three countries, which eventually became an exhibition at the UN headquarters in New York.

Vision

Jane Labous conceived, commissioned, wrote and curated the Just One Inch of Water project for the advocacy division of RNLI, with the aim of showing life by the water - and the human loss and impact of drowning, which claims 360,000 lives a year.
