A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Our old pal Isaac Newton spent his whole life trying to prove that Up was Up, and Up pressed Down on things that were Down.
Well we’re bucking that now-established wisdom and making Sideways where it’s at.
Jan von Holleben’s photo series, “Dreams of Flying,” cleverly switches Up with Sideways by having neighborhood kids lie on their sides amid props on the ground around them.
We guess von Holleben figured that kids spend most of their time crawling around in the dirt anyway, so why not make the best of it?
Bucking gravity, his photographs recreate wondrous scenes from our childhood dreams â€“ taking us back to a time when our grandest ambitions were to explore jungles, walk the moon, and blaze across the Sahara on doggie-back.
The results are imaginative and brilliant. And, taking a page from von Holleben’s book, we’re now off try this for ourselves! All we need is a ladder, some kids, and a camera… Viva la Sideways!

p.p.s. Keen readers may note that Karina blogged this over a year ago. We just loved the idea so much we had to write about it twice!
