Jesus and the Cherries by Jessica Backhaus

The German-American photographer Jessica Backhaus has portrayed the village of Netno and its residents in Northern Poland.
With a sure eye and an unusual color language, she points out the distinctive aesthetic of details she encountered: plastic flowers and crocheted pillowcases, images of saints and lace doilies, and cherries preserved in mason jars.
The intimate character of the images suggests that the photographer must have developed a special relationship to her subject: In Backhaus’ photographs we feel the warmth, cordiality, and authenticity with which she was received in Poland. The photographer’s clear gaze captured the beauty of everyday details and moods. Jesus and the Cherries describes a Poland still a long way from the modernizations that the full integration in the European Union will bring. Jessica Backhaus thus tells a tale of traditional ways of life that may already belong to the past.
Jessica Backhaus was born in Cuxhaven, Germany, in 1970. At the age of sixteen, she moved to Paris, where she studied Photography and Visual Communications. Here she met Gisele Freund, who became her mentor. In 1995, she went to New York, where she assisted the photographers Francois Halard, Michel Comte, and Patrik Demarchelier. Since 2000, she has worked as a freelance photographer in New York. Her work has been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, in New York, in Paris and other European cities.
A limited edition with signed photograph in a specially designed slipcase will also be available.

The photographer Jessica Backhaus has traveled in the region of the Polish province of Pomosrskie repeatedly since She spent a total of three and a half years portraying the town of Netno and its residents. She shows people in their apartments, at work, and in the untouched Polish landscape.

Some photographers have the good fortune to find a mentor in their young years who both inspires and encourages them. Jessica Backhaus found one in Gisele Freund , the great photographer remembered for her portraits of artists, especially writers. Jessica, a young photographer from Germany, was studying photography in Paris when she met the famous Gisele Freund, on November 5, Freund was generous in her concern for a new generation of photographers, and Jessica took to heart her advice to forget about technique and to take pictures with her eyes and heart. One day, before Jessica moved to New York, Gisele suggested that she write about their friendship. She calls it a visual poem, pointing out that she expresses herself best in pictures rather than words.

The results of three years worth of work was published in by Kehrer in a book called Jesus and the Cherries. This is a land that is in transition. This is Poland after the break up of the Soviet Union , where the creeping influence of the west is doing its best to wash over history and tradition with new commercial enterprise. In this seemingly tight-knit rural community of Netno, the traditions, although starting to fade, are still apparent in the decoration and arrangement of homes. In a few generations, this may all be memory. It is through the interiors of homes that Backhaus first started describing the lives of her friends and neighbors in Netno.
