AN UNUSUAL LIFE
...running naked in the Sahara desert, diving beneath a giant waterfall in Portland, cuddling with koalas in Brisbane, meeting Barak Obama in a small hotel in Delaware, building homes for refugees in 'the Jungle' Calais, riding camels in Erg Chebbi, speaking to a crowd of 30,000 in Austin, being held up with a machine-gun in Puerto Vallarta, starting a flashdance mob in São Paulo, riding horses in the sea in Essaouira, commandeering a hamam in Marrakech, barreling into 10 foot waves on the coast of Bali, cliff diving in New Zealand…
As an internationally acclaimed photographer and speaker, Jesh de Rox has spent the last 10 years living on purpose: traveling the world, using the medium of vision to explore the language of emotion and the power of human connection. Sharing extraordinary conversations with tens of thousands of people in over 30 countries in the forms of lectures, speeches, workshops and art exhibits has irreversibly transformed him in more ways than can be mentioned. His work has garnered over 100 awards and been featured in Vogue, Elle and Huffington Post, among many others.
AN UNUSUAL EXPERTISE
A successful portrait shows a level of honest expression rarely given by an individual, particularly to a stranger. Jesh's work in the photography world constantly put him face to face with the social walls we hide our true personalities behind. His explorations in lowering those walls led him to question the formation and role of identity, personality and ultimately the nature of feeling itself.
Developing a simple but powerful language and set of practices for what he learned, he has since helped many thousands of people reconnect with their deepest sense of self, free themselves from constricting emotional patterns, and tap into an infinite well of creativity, allowing them to breathe easier and find deeper levels of fulfillment in their work and lives.
