The Locusts est la première monographie du photographe et éditeur Jesse Lenz. Ses images transportent le lecteur dans l’Ohio rural où ses enfants se déchaînent dans les champs, construisent des forts dans le grenier et s’endorment entourés de sabres laser et de super-héros. Les mondes microcosmiques des plantes, des insectes, des animaux et des enfants créent un paysage maussade où les dichotomies de la nature se jouent devant sa famille grandissante. La cour arrière devient un labyrinthe de passages à mesure que les enfants vivent les cycles de la naissance et de la mort au fil des saisons. The Locusts dépeint un monde dans lequel des choses belles et terribles se produiront, mais offrent grâce et guérison dans la brisure et l’imperfection de la vie.

“The Locusts is a wonderful, very personal work, almost an elegy. Details from life, not of theory. Perhaps this is old fashioned, but ‘true to life’ is still, to my mind, the higher accomplishment.” —Emmet Gowin

“It is tender and sweet, something that I think we need a lot more of right now in the world.” —Todd Hido

“Jesse Lenz expertly crafts a grainy dreamscape that beautifully reveals the wonder of childhood and life’s painful lessons.” —Bryan Schutmaat

“With a profoundly tender eye and an unerring acuity of detail, The Locusts reminds us of this–that while life is, life goes away.” —Katrin Koenning

“Ethereal, tender and ultimately affirming. The Locusts is also the most finely crafted book I’ve held in a long time.” —Raymond Meeks

“Turning the pages is like moving through tall grass at dusk, a mix of trepidation and wonder.” —Jack Woody

“Beyond every frame of every photo, the heartbreaking locusts of progress and desecration are out there somewhere, massing inexorably in the darkness beyond the cardboard fortresses and the fields.” —Brad Zellar

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.
