It’s no secret that we’re very fond of surrealist art (here and here and here). The seemingly irrational juxtaposition of images stirs our senses on many levels. Swedish-born, Prague-based photographer and retouching guru Erik Johansson’s surrealist work is truly captivating, like something out of a dream. His savvy approach does not stop with his artwork itself, but also his approach to documenting it on social media. Through his YouTube channel, Johansson pulls the curtain back on the painstaking process of creating such masterful work. We almost enjoy the thoughtfully produced videos as much as the work itself. As Johansson states on his website, he “doesn’t capture moments, he captures ideas. With the help of his camera and Photoshop the goal is to make it look as realistic as possible.” And that he does beautifully. Incredible work.
