Exhibition of surrealist photographs by Erik Johansson

Swedish artist and photographer Erik Johansson recently welcomed China with his exhibition of surreal photographs at the Today Art Museum, offering audiences a truly immersive artistic journey through audio and visual experiences. Johansson is good at turning fantastic and absurd dreams into images. Unlike traditional photography which only captures the still moment, Johansson is able to make images speak for themselves by capturing the thoughts flowing through them.
