Design

Crossing the desert on the back of a dog, or searching for lost treasures on the bottom of the ocean. Jan von Holleben’s photographs make nostalgic dreams come true. Jan brings the influences of his parents – a cinematographer and child therapist – to his work. His focus on the visual representation of childhood, 'Child-History' and concepts of 'Playing', come from his teacher training course and he combines these theories with his personal experience and childhood memories. Inspired by classic childhood books as well as modern superheroes, he produces Dreams of Flying since 2002 with children from his local neighbourhood in South West Germany – ongoing!

Artist

Jan von Holleben spends his time between Berlin, London and his homeland in South West Germany where he produces the majority of his photography. Born 1977 in Cologne and brought up in the Southern German countryside, von Holleben lived most of his youth in an alternative commune environment.At the age of 13 he followed his father's photographic career by picking up a camera and experimenting with all sorts of 'magical' tricks, constantly developing his photographic skills with friends and family. Following a professional photographic apprenticeship with a commercial photographer and learning all about the technical side of the art, he moved to England aged 23 to study at Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham. After his graduation he became submerged within the London photographic scene where he quickly set up two photographic collectives, became involved as picture editor and photographic director for magazines and agencies and won several prestigious awards a year with his own photography. Jan von Holleben's work is now widely published in magazines and books and he has had solo exhibitions in London, New York, Berlin and Paris.
