If this woman’s worst nightmare involves being chased by an obscenely cute dog-monster with a collar made out of a pair of jeans, then I am totally envious of her subconscious. Come visit me, dog-monster! Photographer Jan von Holleben was commissioned to create this whimsical photo series for a feature about dreams in a German newspaper, and it immediately put a smile on my face. The way these scenes are crafted out of ordinary household items is amazingly clever, and the project really inspires me to push to boundaries of my own imagination!
