Just One Inch of Water
In Asia and Pacific, water shapes the land and its people. From dawn until dusk, life here depends on the rivers and the oceans. But a child can drown in just one inch of water.
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.
Jane Labous conceived, commissioned, wrote and curated the Just One Inch of Water project for the international advocacy division of RNLI, working with the UN, with the aim of showing life by the water - and the human loss and impact of drowning, which claims 360,000 lives a year.
