{SummaryTitle}

Simen Johan creates extremely realistic portraits of animals caught up in human-like endeavors.

Swedish photographer Simen Johan creates portraits of nature, ranging from landscapes to plant-life. The artist captures photographs and digitally manipulates them to maintain realism while adding fabricated elements. These fictional elements give the works certain human qualities. The viewer is confronted with a sense of recognition and confusion with the overwhelming emotional connection between raw nature and urban-esque atmospheres. The border between reality and fantasy is hard to distinguish, forcing audiences to consider the relationship formed between the two. Humans often have an inclination to familiarize and domesticate natural elements of their surroundings.

The Simen Johan works prod into the complex relationship of fantastic versus realistic, and human versus nature.
