Jeremy Sparig has been behind cameras since he was sixteen. His commitment to photography developed after he began documenting the hard lives, idiosyncratic personalities and boundless love of his maternal grandparents. From here he was attracted to the forms of documentary photography, finding that depicting social problems could led to stimulating social change.

While his work continues to depict social themes, Sparig has moved away from a focus on social and cultural marginality towards images of humor, joy, faith, celebration, tradition and beauty.

Sparig grew up in Denver Colorado, and currently lives in New York. His travels have led him across the US, and through Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Israel and Jordan.
