Jump for Joy: A photo project by Eyoälha BakerWednesday, June 29, 2016
I love projects that focus on spreading joy in the world. I love when artists use their gifts to share joy, and feel so much joy in what they're doing that they do it to share joy with others. They love it so much, they can't NOT do it. I think it would be great if we could all find that thing for us, and go do it.
The world always needs JOY! My work is a reminder of the importance of fun, playing, creativity, community, sharing and love."
As I looked through the photos on her website, I started to smile and laugh. It's kind of impossible not to when you see some of their expressions.
I can just imagine all the Italians behind me watching and shaking their heads at yet ANOTHER obnoxious American tourist. HA!
Go check out her photography, it's fun to see, and I imagine you'll be feeling a little, or a lot, of an upswing in your step. Also, watch the TED talk above where she talks about a really cool mural she does with a lot of the photos. It's such a powerful and moving story of what sharing your art can do for others.
