The mystical Simen Johan is showcasing his ethereal photographs at the Yossi Milo Gallery in New York this summer.
In his photographs, Simen darkly explores the human proclivity towards fantasy and our attempts, knowing or otherwise, to craft alternate realities for ourselves. Merging traditional photographic techniques with digital methods, Johan creates each of his images from as many as one hundred negatives, having first constructed or discovered each element and photographed it on film. Across his body of work, the viewer is urged to ponder the relationship between the real and the artificial or imagined.
