“Running from a cat”
The world of dreams is amazing. We approach a fantasy land during our dreams. Photographer Jan von Holleben knows that. And the German newspaper ZEIT knows Jan von Holleben. ZEIT asked the photographer to create visual work for a feature on dreams and what they mean to us. Jan von Holleben is known for his Dreams of Flying so this was his case.
The photographer says: “I was a bit bored by redoing my Dreams of Flying images,” he tells us, “but the more I worked on the layouts and ideas, the more excited I became. I started imagining generic dreams but soon decided to make it about a girl’s full night of dreams. That was the key. I looked for a beautiful girl to work with who was not too model-like but instead was very natural, sweet and happy to try various things with me. It’s never a normal photo shoot with my productions as we improvise a lot and try and play.”
