Josh S. Rose is a U.S. photographer with a long list of accomplishments in photojournalism. His work is assignment-driven; always seeking to capture what is human and what is true.
Rose completed a major project called America At Work, in 2018, where he traveled across the U.S. interviewing and documenting the American worker. From border patrol in San Diego to a boot maker in Detroit and many in between, it was a long-term, funded project, very well received. Rose also covered the myriad of demonstrations and marches in 2018.
In 2019, Rose went inside baseball with the world champion, Washington Nationals. That same year, Rose launched one of his most ambitious projects to date: In/Tents. Here, Rose went inside tents on Skid Row to meet, learn and document the homeless situation in Los Angeles. In 2019, Rose also traveled across the globe for over a month with one of the biggest rock stars in the world.
Rose covers many events: from marathons to car shows, photographs celebrities and artists of all kinds. Rose taught photojournalism at UC San Diego and is a Leica Akademie instructor. Rose is also a popular artist and voice on Instagram and Medium.com, where he is Top Writer on Photography. Rose looks up to and models his work after folks like Robert Frank and Pete Souza and seeks to establish himself in a similar capacity. Working in the White House, documenting decision-making and process at that level is Rose's ultimate dream.
