Combining image elements that he photographed in a variety of international locations, Johan's images reveal poetic and often unexpected relationships that speak to the illusory and multifaceted nature of existence. Stripes on a dazzle of Grévy's zebras mesh with the fronds of geographically incongruent palms; jaguars in a tree are both defined and obscured by their spots and dappled sunlight; pigeons flock towards light like moths (or angels).
"The answers to who we are and what we're doing in this world will come to light and validate our existence, in a reality where understanding is never total, I depict 'living' as an emotion-driven experience, engulfed in uncertainty, desire and illusion." – Simen Johan
