Clever Double Exposures Combine the Photographer with Machines Made from Junk

Using a clever double exposure technique along with found objects laying around the studio, German photographer Jan Von Holleben created a series of photographs depicting himself as the operator of various fantastic contraptions. The project titled "We Will Save the Universe" features a series of universe-saving machines that Jan's friends and family came up with to help improve the world. Speaking about the project Jan says, "Some weeks ago, I asked friends and family about their dearest wishes for their lives and a wonderful future. After heated debates, a tedious selection process, intensive research, and long pre-Christmas nights, my team and I managed to plan, construct, and test a series of 10 machines that fulfill those wishes to everyone's greatest satisfaction."
