Cole with a hovering jump of joy at Palm Springs High School

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

When I went to the Palm Springs High school to ask if I could do photos with the Students, Mr. Brown kindly invited to his class and allowed students to come jump for joy during his class. 17 girls enthusiastically came out to jump for joy with me, and then Cole, the only boy in the group who came out to jump, joined in on the fun. I love his unique jumping style.

I appreciate you coming out to jump around and share some joy with us Cole! Love your jump!


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.
