Jan Von Holleben

Oh how I adore these photos! Jan Von Holleben’s creative Dreams of Flying series are full of childhood innocence and charm. Jan utilizes the influences of his cinematographer and child therapist parents on this project. His work explores the visual representation of childhood and what it really means to be a kid. The background, which is really the floor, is set up so as to present a storyboard aesthetics. The kids are really just lying on their side. Perhaps it is easy to figure it out but it becomes irrelevant how his images are made because the photographs themselves are beautiful and fun. I included this photographer because I have plans of photographing childhood as well and I really miss photography that is fun...
