There are artists who manage to literally subdue us by the quality of their work. Erik Johansson is without question one of them. This artist of Swedish origin now lives in Berlin and excels like nobody in the photo editing. As he says himself, "He does not capture moments, but ideas" : a sentence that says a lot about the vision of the artist who does not just make beautiful shots. Erik Johansson retouch his photos to give them a real meaning, and often his works are very committed to ecology.
And that's precisely the subtlety of his art. Behind the beautiful photos both poetic and surreal that the author offers us, we can detect a real notion of climate anxiety. A trend that is illustrated, for example, with pictures illustrating dramatic climatic disturbances, or even dummy and chiseled landscapes that sometimes exceed our understanding.
