‘Artist’s impossible pictures a big hit’
I was going through some of the links I had bookmarked in Chrome*, and I came across this ninemsn photo gallery featuring some amazing artwork.
When I first came across these photos on ninemsn, their style looked so familiar, and I was sure I had seen something similar or exactly the same on deviantART. So when I rediscovered the link in my Chrome bookmarks today, I decided to search through my favourites on dA to find the deviation that resembled the photos in the ninemsn gallery.
Several pages of favourites later, I found it:
Turns out they’re all by the same artist. The world wide web doesn’t seem so wide now.
The guy who shoots and digitally manipulates these photos is a Swedish artist named Erik Johansson. If you decide to have a look through his dA gallery, also have a read of the description below each individual photo. The stories behind some of those artworks are interesting. For example, Vertical turn is “made out of 3 different photos taken from 3 different heights”. Heaven Express is made from photos taken six months apart. Planet Sweden, which you should definitely go have a look at, is made up of 24 panoramic images.
Here are a few others from his gallery that I especially like:
There’s plenty more on his site that aren’t on dA. Go have a look.

* If I bookmark something in Chrome, it means I enjoyed what I saw, and it’s actually worth having a look at again. If I bookmark it in any other web browser, I intend to have a look at it later, but I usually don’t. Not that any of that matters to anyone.
