Swedish photographer Erik Johansson grew up watching his grandmother paint and escaping into the vast, rich world of video games. Inspired by this, he began to create his own twisted world of illusion where the realistic and the unsettling entwines with the imaginary and majestic.

Johansson writes that “although one photo can consist of hundreds of different images” he always aims to make his pieces “look like they could have been captured.”
