Sharing joy around town in Palm Springs with Jonathan Bechard

Jonathan Bechard photographed by Eyoalha Baker for Jump for Joy Photo Project and Palm Springs Cultural Center Artist Residency

This was such a fun day of playing, exploring and sharing joy with Jonathan (and his husband Tim). I LOVE Jonathan’s vibrant self expression and his powerful energy that shawn though even though he was not feeling 100% on this day. It took several attempts and a laughing fit to get this photo with light on his face within the shadows. It was worth it, I love this photo!

Thanks for sharing your shiny jumping joy with the world Jonathan!


Thank you to the Palm Springs Cultural Center inviting me to be your first Artist in residence and bringing the Jump for Joy Photo Project to the Coachella Valley.
