Jeremy traveled to Rwanda in August 2011 with filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson to document survivors and perpetrators of the 1994 Rwandan genocide who have reconciled and are living life together peacefully in the same community.

“The Poor Will Be Glad” is Jeremy’s 2nd book that he photographed overseas in various countries for Hope International. This eminently practical book shows how ordinary people can help fight poverty around the world. Focusing on proven initiatives such as microfinance and employment-based solutions, the authors, Peter Greer and Phil Smith, outline specific steps we can take in leading the charge against spiritual and physical poverty.
“Hope in the Dark” is Jeremy’s first book and was photographed on his first trip overseas to Africa in 2005. In this book, Jeremy documents the hope and pain of Africa’s AIDS generation – a generation beset by poverty and fear, a generation in which children in some countries are more likely to die of AIDS than not. But despite the sickening odds, Cowart captures brief glimpses of beauty, optimism and joy as he makes his way across the continent.
Jeremy recently started collaborating with People of the Second Chance by combining their words with his images. The photos are being shared on the various social media outlets to raise awareness for POTSC.
