Hotel Maroseyka 2/15 invites you to visit the exhibition of a young Swedish photographer Eric Johansson, famous for his staged surreal landscapes. He boldly invades the image, creating unique masterpieces from fragments of a multitude of frames that expand the boundaries of human perception.
From an early age Johansson was inspired by the works of great surrealist painters: Rene Magritte, Salvador Dali and Maurits Escher, later he got a camera and mastered graphic image processing. At first it was just a fascinating experiment, but very soon Johansson devoted himself entirely to photography, but not in its classical sense.
Eric does not capture the moment, but constructs places and situations from his fantasies, using a camera. By combining real-life objects in a frame, he strives for maximum realism of the image, so that his fantasy worlds seem real.
The process of creating a work for Eric is divided into three stages: planning, where the author works through a lot of ideas, fixing them on paper. Then he begins to look for places, objects and architectural structures that will become part of the final image. At the second stage there is a photographic survey of the material. At the final stage, he processes and assembles all parts of the mosaic in a graphic editor.
The magic of the photographs of Eric Johansson is to capture the impossible and present it as realistically as possible.
