Capturing Ideas: The Surreal Photography of Erik Johansson


“To me photography is 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 it as realistic as possible.”

As he points out, “I don’t capture moments, I capture ideas.”
