We seek out some of the most talented photographers on the planet and ask them to share a bit about themselves and their creative process. Today we have the pleasure of learning more about Swedish surrealist photographer Erik Johansson.
What’s the one quote that always fires you up?
EJ: “We’re only limited by our imagination.”
Do you have any particular habits that are a part of how you begin your creative process?
EJ: I try to look at things around me, trying to make a connection between things in an unexpected way. It’s usually a pretty long process before I decide to bring an idea to life but that’s how it starts.
What do you do when you hit a wall during your creative process?
EJ: I do something completely different; take a walk, go outside, watch a movie. I think it’s pretty hard to force creativity, it comes and goes for everyone.
What’s your favorite photo you’ve ever captured and why?
EJ: It’s hard to say, I think it’s yet to come. But I usually like the ones I’m working on at the moment. If I would have to pick a favorite, I kind of like Soundscapes or The Architect.
