Desert farm jumping joy with Maria at Wong Farms

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

Maria is one of the hard working and dedicated farm workers I met when we visited Wong Farms, one of the certified organic vendors from Palm Springs Farmers Markets. Maria kindly took a few minutes from her lunch hour to jump around and share some joy with us. The farm is located in the Coachella Valley desert, so the photo captures particles of sand or dust lifted from the desert and carried through the air. I just love the vibrant joyful energy that shines through in Maria’s photo.

Gracias Maria for sharing your beautiful joy with the world!


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.
