Erik Johansen’s pictures are worth more than a thousand words. The German born, Swedish based photographer enjoys nothing more than manipulating the mind with his tantalizing visual imagery. His vivid imagination and surreal forms create brilliant pictures of surreal moments, all with a hint of the believable. Originally a computer engineering student, Johansson currently works on personal projects as well as commissioned ones.

In order to realize this mind bending art, he begins by capturing ideas, then develops them into elaborate illustrations that are layered and often highly complex. The results are captivating and absolute eye candy for the brain. Johansson fully enjoys each step of the process, and it translates into his work. He states,”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.” To see more of his art, visit
