The Architecture of Photography
Perception is always a way lay for any form of artist around the world, especially in the rustic art of photography, freezing a fleeting moment in time into a frame for an eternity. Manipulating this perception and creating an altogether different story to unfold has taken a curious turn in this digital age.
Photoshop being an essential part of such process, Erik Johansson a photographer/retouch artist based in Prague, Czech Republic has an array of such stories each weaving its own tale moving the imagination to its boundless limits. Capturing the fleeting moors and landscape of Sweden, most of his work depends upon the architecture and the mood of the atmosphere surrounding the individual captures and that essence in each flourishes the surrealism in the published works rising it to acclaim.
This style of work has the commissions to the likes of Adobe, National Geographic, Google, Microsoft and Volvo among the others.
