‘Between the Shadows’ & ‘Shores of Home’ - new work by Erik Johansson c/o Agent Molly & Co on GoSee

Erik JOHANSSON crafts his compositions through the clever combination of various photographic elements and other materials to create surreal scenes. He does use Photoshop but chooses not to use CGI or AI. His exhibition entitled ‘Echo Chambers’ was on display through early 2024 at Fotografiska Stockholm. On 30 May, Leica Gallery in Prague is presenting ‘The Surreal World of Erik Johansson’ including an artists talk.

Here on GoSee, Erik presents us two of his latest works.

Between the Shadows’ – “Finding light in the darkness. Even in the most difficult of situations, there is eventually a glimpse of light, helping us to lead the way through dark times. Illustrated with the help of negative space, where the light birches gradually become the sky and the space between them the trunks, a transition from dark to light. Photographed last summer in Sweden outside of Götene. Shot on the @hasselblad X2D-100c with the XCD 2.5/55V lens and a @profoto B10Xplus 500ws flash with 1/2 CTO gel to create the light that looks like it’s coming from the flashlight. Created using only my own photographs and photoshop, no CGI or AI-generated elements.”

‘Shores of Home’ – “Just as sailors rely on lighthouses to find their way home safely, the lost lighthouse embarks on a personal journey to find a sense of belonging and home in unfamiliar surroundings. To find and establish roots and find stability under challenging circumstances. The search continues… Photographed in Australia and Sweden, two countries very far apart but in many ways also similar. The trees and house are lit by a flash from the position of where the lighthouse is placed. No CGI or AI-generated material was used to create this image, just compositing with Photoshop and my own photographs.”

For commercial commissions, Erik JOHANSSON is represented by AGENT MOLLY & Co.
