Seeds and Seedlings (4 Photos)

Photographer Brian Steege spent the day photographing the Seed family to create this intimate series of images. Moments of innocence and whimsy are infused with unexpected tension as the Seed children, or “seedlings,” go about their daily lives: An authoritative hand interrupts one daughter’s coloring session, or a rack of knives looms just out of reach as she opens a bag of raisins. With these pictures, Steege manages to simultaneously capture the wonders and dangers of childhood.
