Inspiring conceptual artworks by Master Jan Von Holleben

“Born in 1977 and brought up in the southern German countryside, Jan von Holleben lived most of his youth in an alternative commune and identifies a strong connection between the development of his photographic work and the influence of his parents, a cinematographer and child therapist. 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“, developing his photographic imagination and skills with friends and family and later honing his technique in commercial settings. After pursuing studies in teaching children with disabilities at the Pädagogische Hochschule in Freiburg, he moved to London, earned a degree in the Theory and History of Photography at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, and became submerged within the London photographic scene, where he worked as picture editor, art director and photographic director. He quickly set up two photographic collectives, Young Photographers United and photodebut, followed more recently by the Photographer’s Office.

His body of photographic work focusing on the ‘homo ludens’ – the man who learns through play, is itself built from a playful integration of pedagogical theory with his own personal experiences of play and memories of childhood. Jan von Holleben’s work has been exhibited internationally and published widely throughout the world.” His works are masterpieces that are combined with daily products and bring together concepts that are unique. Words can’t explain his works, so it’s better to get in his official website and you will definitely get inspired. His vision brought a lot of innovative ideas that influenced many other photographers. All his concepts are real and NOT Photoshopped.

Ein Vogel wollte Hochzeit machen

“For over twenty years I have squeezed my professional art career between kids and loads of laundry, and magically I get painting done…but, art has to start in the head before it makes it to the canvas anyway. I do a lot of thinking first.” -Lori McNee
