Jumping for Joy: Artist Proof

James Stanfield

Many NG photographs are the result of a highly talented photographer combining his or her skill with research and planning. But sometimes a wonderful image is just a fleeting opportunity, such as Jim Stanfield's joyful image of a young Parisian girl kicking up her heels outside the Louvre Pyramid, designed by architect I.M. Pei. While Jim was in France to document the French Bicentennial, he passed by as the child was being photographed by a friend and snapped two quick shots.

The resulting image of carefree innocence, energy and joy has been a favorite at NG since July 1989, when it first appeared in National Geographic magazine.
