Behind the Image: Erik Johansson

Erik Johansson (SWE)

Step behind the curtain, or in this case the image, and into the world of Erik Johansson. Gain special insights into Erik’s work, building on his exhibition at the Ballarat Mining Exchange. Using original drawings and short documentaries, understand how Erik’s physical photography is brought to life with digital effects within his digital-darkroom to create his world-renowned images. Get creative and take part in an art activity inspired by his artworks in ArtHouse.

Erik is a Swedish photographer and visual artist based in Prague, Czech Republic. He is known for creating surreal worlds through the combination of photographs. He primarily focuses on personal projects and exhibitions, and his approach to photography is unique in that he seeks to capture ideas rather than moments.

BIFB and RACV present an exclusive long lunch at RACV Goldfields Resort with Erik Johansson, Saturday 2 September 12–3:30pm. Tickets limited, find out more.
