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!

The Light Keeper
Shot in 3 different countries: Ireland, France and Czech Republic. I was working on this project from now and then from September last year until now (2018). Is he bringing or stealing the light, maybe replacing it? What do you think is happening? I’d love to hear your thoughts about it!
This is a photo I made about the inevitable passage of time. I thought I could share it here, would love to hear your thoughts about it. 

A little bit about where I shot it. I photographed the background/water in Ireland earlier this fall and i thought it would be perfect for this idea, there was an island right where I thought I could place the clock so the waves and water would look realistic around it. It was a pretty windy day, this is what the location looked like:
All Above the Sky
This is a project I got the idea for many years ago, I wasn't really sure where to shoot this or even how to do it. But this summer I thought it was time to go through with this project. It's photographed by Sweden's largest lake "Vänern" a late summer evening with heavy rain clouds slowly moving in the horizon as the sun was setting in the west.

I would love to hear your thoughts about it, what does it tell YOU? What is the first and second thing that comes to your mind?

This is an idea I've been carrying with me for a long time. I find the structural properties of an arch interesting, where each part is supporting the other. If you remove one, it will all collapse but as long as the structure is untouched it will remain strong. Shot in Bohemian Switzerland in Czech Republic October 2016. The houses are photographed in Prague and Stockholm. The photo was ready already in May but I wanted to wait and post it in the right season.

So, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it? Share your thoughts!
Under the Corner
This is a new photo I've been working on for the past months. I thought about the idea long time ago and wanted to try to create a perspective illusion in a urban environment. Photographed entirely in Prague, Czech Republic through the spring of 2017.

I would love to hear your thoughts about it! What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it?
Imagine is my first photo book and contains about fifty of my best images created between 2007 and 2016. The book is available in English and Swedish and can be purchased in larger book stores and online, e.g. In Sweden you can find it on: Bokus and Adlibris.

Hope you like it! <3
