The Jan von Holleben What Grows collection is a genius concept surrounding puberty.
The series features youth of all ages, holding ordinary poses; however, thanks to photographic manipulation, Jan von Holleben incorporates a sense of surrealism into the photos. Jan von Holleben uses nature to display symbolism of growth with the addition of flowers, leaves and trees to the photos. Each of the photos in the What Grows collection showcases a different effect of puberty, such as pimples, leg hair and height. In my opinion, the most interesting photo would have to be Voice, which showcases a girl who seems to be spewing out flowers.
The What Grows collection from Jan von Holleben is quite symbolic and von Holleben continues to display his amazing talent.
