Photographer #043: Jan von Holleben

When opening the website of German photographer Jan von Holleben, 1977, a sentence by someone greets you, one of them is: "What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it" by Mark Twain. This phrase symbolises the body of work by von Holleben. Throughout his photographs we see a joy of life, a personal approach and a fascination for the imagination. The following photographs come from the series Dreams of Flying, Snowbed and Cyborg Pets.
