Photoshop wizard bends reality

Self-taught photographer and retoucher Erik Johansson explains on his website that “he doesn’t capture moments, he captures ideas.” And well, some of his ideas are pretty weird. The Berlin-based artist photographs different subjects, and then with the magic of Photoshop, compiles them into creative, often otherworldly scenarios and situations.

Dream Machine

 
Dream Machine
Mark Farina
(JT Donaldson Mix)

lyrics:

what are you thinking of
what are you doing
what do you think you can do
what you are
what you do
looking out at
ripples on the dance floor
what do you mean
is what you get
did you forget to know
what the end is
to begin
clearing
looking out
at ripples on the dance floor

dream machine
did you get
everything you asked for
dream machine
rattlesnake
a charm on the dance floor

love’s rage
broken page
electric lights
and glass bone nights
electric lines run
through your minds
distractions with radio contraptions
pipe ashes
night glasses
tick tock
hear the wind lick
the window
ignited
you’re invited
grow wings
sprouting from the backbone

dream machine
mister jones
you don’t know what you came for
dream machine
rattlesnake
a charm on the dance floor

we are like those two
mirrors
steaming in the rain
we are those two
lovers
holding each other’s hands
dream
with me
rattlesnake
a charm on the dance floor
