Erik Johansson’s images are created with a camera and refined into absurdity in the computer. With mathematical preciseness Erik Johansson’s photographs depict attractive, compelling landscapes where perspectives are always misleading. His artistry is evident in the sheer realism, no matter how absurd. He captures ideas by combining images in new ways to create what looks like a real photograph, yet with logical inconsistencies to impart an effect of surrealism. Some finished images are the combination of ‘hundreds of original photographs’ as well as raw materials, and Johansson spends dozens of hours using image manipulation software such as Photoshop to alter the image digitally and to illustrate his idea.
