Jeroen Oerlemans | 1970 – 2016

All of us at Panos Pictures are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic death of our colleague and friend Jeroen Oerlemans who died in Sirte, Libya, on Sunday, 2nd October.

Throughout the many years we worked with Jeroen – giving him numerous assignments, receiving his work from across the world, seeing his style develop and watching his work grow – it was always a pleasure to observe his professionalism, his can-do attitude to even the most challenging assignments, his interest in all his subjects and his passion for documenting the many stories he felt strongly about. From the Balkans to North Africa and from Afghanistan to Haiti, Jeroen tried to get to the core of the story, engaging with the people he photographed and doing his best to report from the most difficult places and in the most difficult situations.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. We will miss him.
