Optical illusions, images that play with your mind, masterfully crafted by Erik Johansson, a photographer and retoucher based in Berlin.
Johansson is well known on the Internet for his amazing surreal photo manipulations that show everyday scenes in a new way. A number of works are optical illusions created by manipulating and combining images in creative and interesting ways.
The following three pictures were created for the TAC (Transport Accident Commission) to show the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs.
“Although one photo can consist of hundreds of different images,” Johansson writes on his site, he always wants them to “look like it could have been captured.” To create these stunning and most beautiful illusions Johansson combines real images and some digital manipulating techniques. Fromcars driving on the underside of the highway to people living on their ceilings, Johansson’s mind-boggling illusions will definitely have you second guessing.
