Magical Scenes Made on the Ground

The Wizards

Forget everything you ever knew about creative kids photography (except for anything by Jason Lee) and then take a look at this. Jan von Holleben, the talented photographer who made a name for himself with Dreams of Flying just sent us over these wonderfully inspiring images. Action Heroes picks up where Dreams of Flying left off…only it’s bigger and better.

Fun fact: von Holleben asked some of the very same people in Dreams of Flying to now star in Action Heroes. “The kids that I worked with for many years are now teenagers,” he tells us. “Their visions and dreams are quite different from what they were some years ago. They are also much more complex.”

“We turned all those ideas into new images in which the floor (as in Dreams of Flying) became, once again, the background for many special physical acts,” he continues. “Then, we added a second layer of using the surface of the photograph, adding flowers, leaves, toys and so on, reproduced the images and then, finally, we sandwiched both layers together.

“All analogue as usual! This way we had even more flexibility with working on content.”
