Art Inspiration: Erik Johansson

Erik Johansson is a photographer and photo retoucher from Sweden. He creates abnormal surreal photos that make your imagination run wild. "I don’t capture moments, I capture ideas." That is what Johansson is all about and it truly shines through in his work. His photo manipulations take you to places out of this world and create the dialogue for stories you can finish in your own head.

Johansson's photo manipulations are some of my favorites in this line of art. I enjoy it when he takes a normal everyday setting and turns it into a fairy tale. His type of photo art is one that will forever inspire me to work at creating my own manipulations. Unlike Johansson though, my manipulations have a lot more perfecting to do.
