Swedish photographer and retouch artist Erik Johansson has one of the craziest photography portfolios we’ve ever seen.
Erik is completely self-taught in retouching his own photographs to make impossible and extraordinary images. He says his inspiration came from both growing up with a grandmother who painted and having a penchant for escaping into the other worlds of video games, so he naturally blended the two into a technique using computers to generate images that couldn’t be captured by a camera.
Check out some of his mind blowing creations below:
Cut & Fold – Cut along the dotted line.
Drifting Away – A safe place, drifting away.
Expecting winter – Where seasons meet.
Big laundry day.
Work at sea.
Breaking up – Breaking up, drifting apart.
Groundbreaking – Let’s go on a field trip.
Set them free – Do the right thing, set them free!
Arms break, vases don’t.
Roadworker’s coffee break.
Common sense crossing.
Face vs. Fist.
Go your own road.
A painting too real.
End of Line – The very last stop, the end of line.
If that didn’t blow your mind, nothing will.
Share Erik’s incredible work with others. He’s ridiculously talented.
