Photoshop Genius Erik Johansson Shows How His Mind-Bending Pics Are Born

Photoshop master Erik Johannsson creates optical illusions and photo manipulations so mind-bending and life-like that his work sometimes seems like magic. In these awesome behind-the-scenes videos, however, we get to see how he actually creates some of his artwork

Aside from his extensive use of Photoshop, his videos show how the real and imaginary worlds blend seamlessly in his photos. For most of his surreal photos, he had to photograph different elements of the photos in real life before blending and layering them in Photoshop. Simple solutions, like a bottle or a roll of paper, transform into his surreal artworks right before your eyes.
