On the Other Side of Reality. Erik Johansson
The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography is presenting the work of the young Swedish photographer Erik Johansson, known for his staged surreal landscapes. Each of his works consists of fragments of many images, carefully processed and cleverly combined in a graphics editor. Johansson boldly invades images with manipulation, constructing fantasy scenes and expanding the boundaries of human perception. Erik does not capture a moment, but realizes his fantasies, using the camera and fully constructing places and situations.Combining real-life objects in the frame, he seeks to maximize the realism of the image, so that his fantasy worlds seem genuine. "No one can say that it doesn't look realistic if I really captured it all on camera," he comments, defining his style as "photorealistic surrealism". Until 12.05.2019.
