Natalia Lopez jumping for joy in dome filled circles of light

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

Natalia is one of several enthusiastic Girl Guides who came out to jump for joy with us. This dome was immediately of interest to me as a jumping location, so I was happy that both Naomi and Natalia let me experiment with capturing their jumps in the light shining through holes around the dome. After a just few attempts of getting her to jump up so that the light hit her face, we got lucky and I love the way her jump photo turned out.

Thank you for being willing to let me experiment and play and for sharing you vibrant jumping joy Natalia!


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.
