Swedish photographer Erik Johansson is known for his dreamy, surreal images. It takes him a serious amount of time to create his work, and his latest project Stellantis is no exception. Erik has recently shared a BTS video which shows the journey of this image from a simple sketch to finished work.
Swedish photographer Erik Johansson is known for his dreamy and surreal images. This time, he decided to depict the change between day and night. As always, the artist of great imagination took a lot of time and effort to turn his idea into a photo, and in this video, he takes you behind the scenes of his latest project.
We already know photographer Erik Johansson for his dreamy photo manipulations such as Full Moon Service or the Mirrored Lake Project. This time he was inspired by that magical moment right before falling asleep, when you let go of your rational thoughts and the dreams start to replace them. He illustrated this moment in a mesmerizing photomontage, and he takes you behind the scenes of the photo shoots he did in order to create the final image.
Swedish Photographer and retoucher Erik Johansson goes all out for his creations. They take so much work that, according to his website, Johansson aims to create only six to eight new images per year. Some of you might remember his mirrored lake project from last year. A fantastic feat of both photography and digital illustration work. Now he’s back with something equally as impressive.
Full Moon Service shows a crew in operation swapping out the moon for one showing a different phase. It’s a very cute idea, and the execution of it is absolutely superb. The project started in Summer 2016, but it’s a lot of work. There’s a lot of planning and preparation before the shoot, and a lot of post work afterwards. Johannson also released a behind the scenes video to show how it was made.
When photographer and retoucher Erik Johansson decides to create an image, he certainly makes an effort to push the boat out, quite literally in this case.
In a project that took several months to complete, Erik used 17 square meters of mirror to help produce this extraordinary scene, and while there’s certainly a lot of post and retouching going on here, it was a lot of work in the camera, too!
