Dreams of Flying

I want to question and challenge traditional views on childhood and how a child defines its own being. All images are produced in collaboration with the kids from my neighbourhood.

I look at my ideas through the eyes of my inner child... and also through the eyes of the matured child in memory to those times when I didn't know what childhood was all about!

My childhood was very adventurous and not always easy yet well protected. I guess that I very much enjoyed being a child and was also very much aware of that. These experiences nurture my work.

Dreams of Flying got recently published as Limited Edition Artist Book and is availble through the website http://www.janvonholleben.com where you can also see more of my work.
