Peaceful hovering joy with Hannah Russell Palm Springs High School

Hannah Russell photographed by Eyoalha Baker for Jump for joy Photo project and Palm Springs Cultural Center Artist Residency

What a beautiful spirit. I love this joyful and peaceful jump photo of Hannah. I can’t get over how lovely the students at Palm Spring High School where when I came to do jumping photo with them. Mr. Brown kindly let me share a few words about the project and why I feel that joy is such an important and powerful emotion. It was clear, as soon as I met the students that they not only understood why I feel it’s important, but also embody the powerful energy of joy. The willingness and enthusiasm of everyone who jumped was inspiring.

Thank you Hannah for being you and for sharing your jumping joy with us!
