Although aesthetics is clearly an important aspect of creating art, Jump for Joy! Photo Project is focused on more than just the aesthetics.. I believe in the positive effects of joy and the creative collaboration between photographer and subject. The photo shoot and final photos also serve a purpose and are intended to have a positive effect on all involved. We are co-creating art with an anticipated outcome that is intended to create a feeling of joy and inspiration for all – myself as photographer (and jumper), the person creatively expressing their essence of joy in mid jump and the viewer of the final image.
