East Jesus Photo Shoot with Jasmine Alkouri

East Jesus is an off-the-grid, hippie artist commune that resides within Slab City (the last free place in America), which is basically a giant squatters community. Located in the desert of California's Imperial County (3 hours outside of Los Angeles), East Jesus exists to escape mainstream living and an ordered society. This place is awesome and we could not pass up the opportunity to shoot at this very unique camp. The residents were super cool and, in the spirit of Slab City, they let Jasmine and I do whatever the hell we wanted to do. It was liberating, it was exciting, and definitely one for the books. Enjoy the behind-the-scenes video along with the photos.  Lastly, stay tuned for the third and final part of our Salton Sea shoot as we venture into Bombay Beach (a now almost completely abandoned resort town).
