Jessica Backhaus' photography series 'Jesus and the Cherries' captures the divergence between the youthfulness of her subjects and the antiquated German town they live in.

The German photographer went out of her way to recreate the scene for the viewer, leaving no detail unattended. This means that between shots of bright-eyed and bushy tailed youngsters enjoying the sun, she includes shots of peeled apples and half-drank glasses of juice. The series, in its entirety, will transport you to a small, German village, where you can almost feel the salt water drying on your skin, the breeze moving through the trees and the gentle lull of conversation and laughter from the surrounding guests.

Ultimately, Backhaus' 'Jesus and the Cherries' looks exactly how contentment feels.
