Erik Johansson
“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 I always want it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize them as realistic as possible.”
Erik Johansson is a photographer from Sweden. He now lives and works in Berlin, Germany. This contemporary successful artist does both personal and commission work for companies around the world.

What is surrealism?
Surrealism is an art movement founded by the painter Salvador Dali. The images appear realistic, but upon further inspection, one can see the images cannot be real. They look more like dreams.
Salvador Dali
