Erik Johansson (born 1985) is a photographer and image creator from Sweden based in Prague, Czech Republic. His work can be described as surreal scenes created by combining different photographs. Erik works on both personal and commissioned projects with clients all around the world. In contrast to traditional photography he doesn't capture moments, he captures ideas with the help of his camera and imagination. The goal is to make it look as realistic as possible even if the scene itself contains impossible elements. In the end it all comes down to problem solving, finding a way to capture the impossible.
To Erik it's always important with a high level of realism in his work. It's important to make people feel like they are part of the scene, to relate to it. Although his work consists of a lot of work in post-production he always tries to capture as much as possible in camera. "No one can tell you that it doesn’t look realistic if you actually captured it for real."
