Inspired by classic children's books as well as modern superheroes, Jan von Holleben started producing Dreams of Flying in 2002 with children from his local neighborhood in southwest Germany. Jan brings the influences of his parents (a cinematographer and a child therapist) to his work. His focus on the visual representation of childhood comes from his teacher-training coursework: he combines the theories of 'Child History' and 'Play' with his personal experience and childhood memories.
Do you still fly in your dreams — or dream that you will once again?
