Photographer Erik Johannson creates
impossible but photorealistic
images that capture an idea, not a moment.
Why You Should Listen
Erik Johannson is a self-taught photograher who learned how to retouch photos to make impossible and extraordinary images. Growing up with a grandmother who painted and a penchant for escaping into the other worlds of video games, he naturally blended the two into a technique using computers to generate images that couldn’t be captured by a camera.
