Every day beautiful photos such as this arrive in my inbox from JUMP FOR JOY!’s WordPress blog. Each photo guaranteed to make me smile and change the course of my day. And I think that is her whole point… “I hope to contribute to the shift of our collective focus from the negative to the positive.” Eyoälha Baker “captures the beauty of the human spirit in mid-air through the simple act of taking photographs of people jumping for joy.”
I feel I have found a way to reach the true joy and child-like playfulness within people by having them jump for joy in front of the camera lens. This playful, child-like joy is why I’ve launched the project — Jump for Joy!
“Surrounding yourself with images that uplift your spirit is as important for your health as nutritious food.” – Deepak Chopra in Origin Magazine
Besides the joy of finding these photographs in my inbox every day, Eyoälha also has two major projects happening:
She is raising money via Kickstarter to cover costs of creating an epic public art mural with photos of 100+ people jumping for joy around Vancouver on a 9000 sq. ft. building wall in the Down Town east side. — Jump for Joy Photo Project + Murality Vancouver
All pledges OVER the $5000 mark will go towards completing a book of 10000 people jumping for joy around the world!
“Create art, spread joy, feel good.” I LIKE her.
One of the latest additions to my photography portfolio. So much fun!
