Jan von Holleben: Dreams of Flying

Do you dream of flying? We Slinked to Jan von Holleben's photography in the spring and now that he's come out with a book, we thought he deserved a full post. Holleben, a young German photographer, makes childhood dreams of "flying" - through the air, underseas, in desert adventures - come true.

By cleverly positioning his subjects on the ground, posed as if in flight, he tricks the eye into seeing the fantasy rather than the reality.

Dreams of Flying is for sale on Holleben's website (25 GBP).

Want to try your hand? Check out the fan gallery of almost 40 photos.

Someone has also made an animated video in the spirit of Dreams of Flying set to the a song by The Postal Service.
