Erik Johansson's Behind the Scenes Look at "Cut & Fold"

by

Erik Johansson is a professional photographer and retoucher from Sweden. Recently, Johansson sent us a behind the scenes video of his latest creation "Cut and Fold." This behind the scenes video shows how Johansson created this piece from shooting to final image and includes a screen capture of the process played back at 80 times normal speed. We always enjoy seeing how top artists create their work so we thought that we would share his process with you. Enjoy!

    How They Did It: Alice in VideolandAlice retina
