Joth Shakerley To commission him or to request prints of his work: Joth is an internationally renowned social photographer covering events and portraits for the Royal family and celebrities including Cara Delevingne, The Rolling Stones, Gian Luca Vialli and Thandie Newton. He worked as a photojournalist in conflict zones such as El Salvador, Cambodia and the Gulf honing his skills at capturing the truth behind the image. He has two books published, The Taming of the Eagles which is a poignant account of life in the Soviet Union after the collapse of communism and Pregnant Women, a view on the beauty of motherhood in all its naked glory. His passion and his art has always been his 35 years of travels with the Rainbow Family. In the summer of 1986 Joth received an invitation at the Hare Krishna temple in Los Angeles to go to a Rainbow Gathering in the foothills of Big Sur, California, an invitation which was to completely change his life. Since then, he has been on an epic journey that has taken him and later his family to Gatherings all over the world, travelling to Hawaii, Thailand, Morocco, Russia, Australia, The Arctic Circle, Israel, Mexico and almost every country in Europe. His daughters have grown up at Gatherings and still sing the Rainbow songs and he maintains beautiful heart to heart connections to friends and family from all over the world. It has always been his vision to bring these photographs, these incredible, shared, intimate moments into a book, to portray a different way of being, a positive view on how we can all change, how we can transform, heal and reconnect with ourselves and our hearts in the beauty of nature.
