My name is Erik Johansson, I'm a professional photographer and retoucher from Sweden living in Prague, Czech Republic. Deviant art is a great place for inspiration and here I share my personal work. Thanks for commenting on my work, it keeps me realizing new ideas. I try to realize personal ideas as often as I can. I photograph everything myself, I never use stock images, that is the big challenge for me to capture all the material myself. The inspiration is everywhere. I hope my gallery can inspire you as well!

...I also released a book!

Cumulus and Thunder
I always thought that clouds and sheep look somewhat similar and I had this idea in mind for the past years. I finally shot it a sunny afternoon in Sweden with a ramp, fake clouds the sheep shot the day after. Made with home built tools and shot in mainly natural light. 

I would love to hear your thoughts. What comes to your mind when you see it? What do you think is going on here?

edit: behind the scenes video up now:
Wake Up!
She became absorbed, oblivious to the passage of time. You can pretend to be asleep, but you can't pretend to be awake.

Volvo made a feature of me when I was creating this piece, have a look here, like a well produced BTS video:
Shot in three rounds, first the trees in a lake, the girl in a pool and the trees from a crane.

Would love to hear what you think about it, where is she, how did she get there? What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it?

EDIT: big thanks for the DD!!! :D
A Photo I've been working on for the past 6 months from now and then, shot on Faroe Islands and and Sweden. I would love to hear what you think, what is happening and what is the first thing that comes to your mind?
Lost in the Rain
An idea I carried with me for some years that I finally put to life. It was part of my exhibition at Fotografiska in Stockholm earlier this year and the last unpublished photograph from my book. I would love to hear if you have any thoughts about it, what is happening? Why are they there?
Cutting Dawn
A piece I've been working on for some time that was actually done already a few months ago. Foreground is shot on Faroe Islands, background is from Sweden and Czech Republic, Moravia. I would love to hear your thought and what you think of it. What is she up to?

Your gallery is so poetical. I like it:)
Malyukov Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016
Thank you for a great, exciting work! But why don't you put your signature on every drawing?
alltelleringet Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016  Professional Photographer
glad you like it! well, I think that might be a bit distracting, taking away from the impact of the image. When people buy prints they get a signature but normally not when I show them online :)

Hey Erik,
This thief has a gallery created completely with others works of various type. You can contact the administration to ban that user from DA.
I think you recognize these 2 works. (he use even your name to promote commercial activities.)
