Swedish Erik Johansson, a photographer based-in Berlin, Germany, retouches photographs to create incredibly bizarre and unbelievable scenes. Each piece featured below is a finished work made out of several images, of which Erik magically morphed them into seemingly one captured real photograph. Sure, anyone armed with Photoshop can alter images. But to produce a surreal and beautiful artwork, you need a wonderful idea, terrific skills and creative imagination. Fortunately, Erik has it all!
Erik Johansson is a photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. Working both on personal and commissioned projects. He doesn’t capture moments, he captures ideas. To Erik photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in his mind with a problem solving approach. Although one photo can consist of hundreds of different images he always wants it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and the goal is to realize it as realistically as possible.
