AGENT MOLLY & CO presents Erik Johansson
As a photographer and retoucher Erik Johansson c/o AGENT MOLLY & CO tests the boundaries between what is real and what is fiction. He describes his both unique and acclaimed style as unreal ideas implemented in a realistic way, with a touch of humour. Since 2012 he has been living in Berlin, working with his own projects and clients such as Google, Adobe and Microsoft.

For him, taking photographs is rather collecting material in order to realise his ideas and a finished picture can consist of hundreds of photographic images. Each new project is a new challenge and Erik’s goal is to make each picture look as realistic as possible. Erik grew up on a farm in Västergötland. "Growing up in the Swedish countryside has had a great impact on my visual style. Many of the environments I use in my pictures are places around where my parents live, with wide open landscapes and small red houses". Erik had an interest in drawing and computers from an early age, escaping to other worlds through his computer games. "When I was 15 I got my first digital camera, which opened up new doors for me." However, it was the manipulation of the photograph that interested him the most, being able to create something that could not be captured with the camera.

In 2005 he moved to Gothenburg to study computer science at Chalmers University of Technology. During his studies, he began publishing pictures online, which in turn led to offers of commissioned work from various local advertising agencies. He began freelancing in tandem with his studies, landing more and more assignments. On graduating from Chalmers he decided to continue freelancing full-time as a photographer. "Although I still think that interaction design is a very interesting topic, photography and retouching are my passions." © // 15 files // show complete blog

AGENT MOLLY & CO presents SVEN PRIM
Sven Prim has a talent for transforming impossible ideas into surreal and complex images. Both a world-class photographer and a skilled retoucher, Sven has proven time and again that he can build anything from nothing. Many people think that a photograph's truth is compromised in post but Sven doesn't agree at all. ''The concept of truth is completely subjective. I believe that a picture is always manipulated, regardless of how it is taken. When the photographer selects the time and place to snap a picture, the truth is already being bent. I am very up-front about how my pictures are created.''

Sven Prim got his first advertising job whilst still attending photography school. Directly after graduation he landed a deal with Agent Molly Co, moved to Stockholm and started working as a full-time photographer. Since then, he has collaborated with a long list of renowned clients such as ATG, Aftonbladet, RFSU and Polar Music Prize. Sven describes himself as a real technology geek who loves to create strange and surreal situations. Something clearly visible in his image creation, which he himself has given the epithet manipulated pictures with a twist. He is equally skilled both as a photographer and a retoucher and discovered early the fantastic opportunity that post production can present for creating an extra dimension in images.

Clients: Absolut Vodka, Plaza, Autan, Samsung, RFSU, Kikkoman, TV8, Polar Music Prize, Nokia, TV3, IHM, Norrmejerier, Metro, Riksgälden, SBAB, Aftonbladet, Paus Ljud och Bild, Folkoperan, Saunalahti, Apoteket, Handelsbanken, ATG, Ishotellet, Pride, Hunt and many more. © // 19 files // show complete blog
