Looking at other artists: Erik Johannson

Erik Johannson is an incredible fine art photographer and his imagination just amazes me. I did another blog post on him once before, but I must have deleted it. I can’t find it. I thought it would be good to look at him again.

He turns his world inside out and I so want to do something like this, but I worry I don’t have the imagination.

While looking around on the internet I found some videos of how he works. I thought I might share some and maybe some of his images.

See if you are inspired by his work.

It makes me want to try some things, and when I saw these videos and saw that he starts with drawings, I wonder if I should do the same thing. It is a good way to start. I would have to find some of my old sketchbooks.

The imagination is really going to have to start working overdrive here.
