The Seraphim
by Jesse Lenz

"When childhood is immersed in nature, reality comes wrapped in myth and marked by seasons. Jesse Lenz has caught many small things, and holds them between his pages like brief flowers.”
- David Campany
"Your kind eyes made me feel at peace for a moment.”
- Rinko Kawauchi

“Tender, haunting, mesmerizing, and affirming. Beautifully produced with next-level, gorgeous printing”
- Raymond Meeks

”Lenz is always present and the experience captured feels that way”
- Mark Stienmetz

“A supernatural book of gazing and running, of rising and falling, of bloom and wilt, of growth and decay.”
- Igor Posner

”Alarmingly specific, with layers of ethereal, complex beauty. I look forward to seeing what happens next with each new chapter!”
- Andrea Modica

The Seraphim is the second volume of the The Seven Seals septology by photographer Jesse Lenz. Delving deeper into the vision that started with The Locusts, the reader explores a realm of childhood enchantment where nature insists upon sets of fledgling counterparts. His children experience the joys, curiosity, and vulnerability of childhood alongside other creatures that seem to either be standing vigil over them, or stalking them from the shadows. The backyard becomes a labyrinth of passages as the children experience the cycles of birth and death in the changing seasons. The Seraphim depicts a brooding landscape in which life’s greatest mysteries can be witnessed through the prism of small, infinitesimal lives.
