About the artist

Jan von Holleben has 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, picking up a camera and experimenting while developing his photographic imagination and skills with friends and family. After pursuing studies in teaching children with disabilities at the Pädagogische Hochschule in Freiburg, he moved to London and earned a degree in the Theory and History of Photography at Surrey Institute of Art and Design. After graduation, he became immersed in the London photographic scene, working as picture editor, art director, and photographic director. 

He set up two photographic collectives, Young Photographers United and Photodebut, followed recently by the Photographer’s Office. Dynamic, colorful, and full of whimsy, von Holleben's work focuses on the ‘homo ludens’ – the man who learns through play. It is itself built from a playful integration of pedagogical theory with his own personal experiences of play and memories of childhood. His work has been exhibited and published internationally.

About the book

A search-and-find book with a story to tell, including hundreds of photos. Seven worlds teeming with life promise all the fun of searching and finding – and nothing is impossible. In the park you can fly; no machine is impossible for inventors to invent; on the road you can turn yourself into a vehicle; and in the zoo you can become any animal you wish to be. Jan von Holleben spent several month and weeks with 250 school students taking more than 2500 photos and used the best of them to make 13 pictures. Each topic has a version that is particularly full of teeming pictures and one that is a zoom variation where Jan von Holleben’s unique approach can be seen in close up. Konrad and his friends are to be found in each of the pictures while on a wild chase after a thief who has pinched Granny’s handbag. Moreover, there are all sorts of other exciting things to look for, and while you are doing this you stumble across the most extraordinary things.
