    Surrealist Photographer

    I think people may be interested in the work of this swedish photographer. Not too many photographers work in this branch of photography. http://erikjohanssonphoto.com

    Interesting work. The only people I know working in surrealism right now are Kahn + Seleznik and the Parkeharrisons.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    I'd class him as a Photoshop artist and the work is interesting, but appropriating old ideas a little too literally for my liking. Really like the fish image though - can imagine it as a Shimano advert in a magazine spread.
    There is definitely a great deal of this kind of work being produced in advertising photography, but you don't often see it breaking into the art world because the 'media' (digital art/photography) is too much of a grey area.

    Here is another one, although, this arist uses all appropriated images which I guess classifies his body of work as digital art.

    True, I wonder if she got the "bug" from Jerry but took the digital route.

    I am not sure about that Ann , though it is interesting that they both seem to follow somewhat same path.
    I saw a couple of her prints at Paul Paletti's gallery last year and really like her work.
    so much so that I plan to see if I can make a few tri colours carbon prints for her in the future if she is interested.
    I think I saw inkjet prints which are not in my game plan for the future.

    I have only seen her digital work , which at times has that surrealistic look.
