Shot From the Edge™
Shot From the Edge™ is a photographic series by photojournalist Jerry Roxas to highlight the unseen beauty that can be seen almost anywhere less than 50 feet from the road. This series of photos draws attention to the fact that you don’t need to be physically fit or travel far to experience and capture amazing images.
Having been a successful entrepreneur, Jerry was blessed to have lived a pretty wonderful life, filled with opportunities to experience and travel to numerous places throughout the world. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your view!), Jerry suffered sudden heart failure in early 2014 that required him to undergo a quadruple bypass. This was followed up by several years of medical issues, ranging from bladder disease to diabetes, and culminating in a diagnosis of kidney cancer in 2016. Through his long road to recovery, he begain to view the world (and his purpose) in a very different light.
Now a full time photographer, Jerry focuses most of his time on enjoying and sharing the little things in life that matter most. When he’s not shooting weddings, events, portraits, products and headshots to pay the bills, he spends his time capturing stirring images to tell the story of what the world has to offer right here and now, for those willing to open their eyes and take a look. And through his continual recovery, Jerry has come to realize that some people may feel like they’re not physically or financially capable of traveling to experience such beauty.
Shot From the Edge™ is a photographic series designed to highlight what can be seen by almost anyone, as ALL shots are taken no more than 50 feet from the road. Please, enjoy!
