Erik Johansen’s pictures are worth more than a thousand words. The German born, Swedish based photographer enjoys nothing more than manipulating the mind with his tantalizing visual imagery.

Originally a computer engineering student, Johansson currently works on personal projects as well as commissioned ones.
