    I think the first picture was taken on the M1 – only that could explain the roadworks that have been going on for the past five years…

  2. Dev says:

    Pretty neat…

  3. Clémentine says:

    love them all! but the ironing is fun

  4. rayneydaze says:

    My favorite is the one with the picture of the boats.

  5. Sohvan says:

    Number 4

  6. John Rowland says:

    The first is favourite…

  7. Jerry says:

    The “cliff in the road,” #3.

    The same guy has a new project in central stockholm this week, a 300 sqm photo laid on the ground at a central square:
    (I believe the photo in the link is a mock up, but they had filmed it on the local news last night and it’s pretty close)

    That’s just pure awesomeness! and nice to see our brothers in Sweden has the fix on doing great photo work. Cudos to Erik!

  11. felixsanchez says:

    #2 and #3 are my favorites. But all are amazing! Nice work 🙂

  12. Betsey B says:

    The cliff in the road is my favorite, too. Very visually stimulating.

  13. bigjohn756 says:

    #2 is the funniest to me. #4 is the stuff of nightmares.

  14. Affy says:

    Great pics. Mine is a tie between 2 and 3.

  15. Erik R. says:

    The wet painting is my favorite, because it’s the only one where I can’t even begin to figure out how it was done.

  16. Sari1967 says:

    I prefer 1 and 4.

  17. Berhard says:

    If it is photoshopped it no longer deserves the name “foto”, only digital art…

  18. Vince says:

    Definitely the one with the bike. I can just imagine the person getting off, checking it out, seeing the ninety degree angle, and just sit there thinking “What the ****?”

    • Sohvan says:

      There’s a black mark on the road where the bike has stopped quickly. I thought that was a nice touch.

    Shame on you, Richard: He is certainly not a “mysterious Swedish photographer”. His name is Erik Johansson, and the very least you could do you is to give him due credit and a link to his website (visible on the pictures if you look closely).

  23. M says:

    I had seen #2 before. #5 made me laugh. Like them all.

  24. Honestly, couldn’t choose, all are amazing and wonderful indeed.

  25. Jason F. Cannon says:

    My favorite is the punch in the face. I do that daily……

  26. mittfh says:

    Setting up the component photos must have been interesting, let alone the distortions / editing required to combine them into a coherent picture.

    I quite like “Worker’s Coffee Break” and “Hang havet pa waggen”.

    “Vertical Turn” doesn’t quite do it for me, and “Face vs Fist” looks too much like a flesh-coloured bean bag in front of the subject’s face.

    Looking at his website, he’s definitely a fan of M C Escher (“Common sense crossing”, “Impossible escape”, “Crossroads” and “Downside of the upside” for example), and I love the Ikea Volvo joke 🙂

    However, “Nackdalen med att hacka fort” is not for the squeamish…

    They’re all brilliant but I think I like the first one best 🙂

  28. Bacchus P. says:

    #4, the cliff in the road. Rather dizzying, but cool!

  29. Vern says:

    #4 is my fave. I think the Goodies encountered this on their way to the Olympics that time.

  30. […] Richard Wiseman has a small gallery of Erik J’s photoshopped photos. This one in particular I thought was great. […]
