Photo Manipulation: 15+ Examples by Erik Johansson

Photo manipulation has become an ‘art form’ for some graphic artists. Photo manipulation is made possible by the use of digital/analog technology. Photo manipulation means applying various methods of editing images to create an illusion/difference in the photograph. It is a widely used art in the fields of print media and advertisements today.

Here were are introducing an amazing photo manipulating artist Erik Johansson to you. He is a full time photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. He works on both personal- and commissioned projects and sometimes he creates street illusions. He don’t capture moments, he capture ideas. To him photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in his mind. He get inspired by things around his daily life and all kinds of things he see. Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers he always want it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and his goal is to realize them as realistic as possible. For more information please check his FAQ/Biography or  TED talk.
