Influencing Me – Erik Johansson

Influencing Me – Erik Johansson

For the Influencing Me post today I thought I would do a repost of one that I did on Erik Johansson. I have a video for you to watch today that I hope you will enjoy. It is Erik Johansson talking about this work.

Influencing Me – Erik Johansson

I never tire looking at his work and he continually inspires me. I find his imagination unbelievable and wish I could think of the things he does. it doesn’t matter how much I keep trying to think of things, I don’t seem to have a lot of luck.

He shows us what is possible if you just push yourself.

I don’t want this to be another post on him totally, I have done a few lately. However, last year I did a presentation at a camera club and for it, I talked about several artists, Erik was one of them. I also found lots of videos to show on each of the artists. The following is one where Johansson talks about his work and how he creates it. It is really interesting.

I am going to be talking to the Knox Camera Club next month and I know I will be showing the work by him again. He is very inspirational. People always enjoy looking at his work. The way he works is also very interesting. I love trying to see how he creates his images.

You can learn so much from the way he works. It is nice to see that he takes some time to make his images. It is incredible.

I should stop going on about him,I should.

I hope you enjoy seeing his work again.
