Surreal Photos That Make You Look Twice

Erik Johansson is a full time photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. He works on both personal- and commissioned projects and sometimes creates street illusions. He says “I don’t capture moments, I capture ideas. To me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see.”

Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers he always wants it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and his goal is to realize them as realistic as possible. For more information please check the FAQ/Biography or TED talk.

Equipment: Hasselblad H5D-40, Hasselblad HCD 35-90, Adobe Photoshop CC

“Behind the scenes video of my latest creation Cut & Fold, from shooting to final photo. The post production took about 15 (effective) hours, the clip contains a selection of that process played back at 80 times normal speed. Video was filmed and cut by me, music by Justice – New Lands (Falcon remix). Enjoy.” Erik Johansson
