From the Publisher:
‘It’s a wonderful, very personal work, almost a elegy. All feels completely and truly observed. Details from life, not of theory. ‘True to life’ is still, to my mind, the higher accomplishment.’ — Emmet Gowin
‘The Locusts is tender and sweet, something that I think we need a lot more of right now in the world.’ — Todd Hido
The Locusts is the first monograph by photographer and publisher Jesse Lenz. His images transport the reader to rural Ohio where his children run wild in the fields, build forts in the attic, and fall asleep surrounded by lightsabers and superheroes. The microcosmic worlds of plants, insects, animals, and children create a brooding landscape where dichotomies of nature play out in front of his growing family. The backyard becomes a labyrinth of passages as the children experience the cycles of birth and death in the changing seasons. The Locusts depicts a world in which beautiful and terrible things will happen, but offers grace and healing within the brokenness and imperfection of life.
