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

I was 12 years old when Chernobyl happened. I grew up with an understanding of alternative energy resources and no future for nuclear power. Many of the landscape pictures where taken in and around Arles in June 2008 when 3 disturbing incidents happened at the nuclear power station in Tricastin and made our stay rather troublesome. However not many people seemed to care about it and the news kept rather quiet about it. Things have to happen. Human beings just need to adapt (forced by nature and nuclear circumstances) and become hybrids – fit enough for survival in a nuclear future. Concept & Photography: Jan von Holleben Collage: Sergei Sviatchenko
