Simen Johan Digitally Constructs An Imagined Animal Kingdom
Simen Johan’s ongoing series ‘Until The Kingdom Comes’ depicts the natural world as something familiar, yet undeniably surreal.
While many photographers choose not to utilise digital technology to enhance and distort the content of their work, Johan describes it as an essential part of his practice. ‘its rare that I see something that i want to simply photograph and not change at all, when constructing or manipulating images, I’m still limited by whatever raw material I’m able to capture on film, but I have more creative freedom to be imaginative.’
Johan presents images from ‘Until The Kingdom Comes’ at Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium, Norway until 9th October 2015.
