Erik Östensson encourages to expand the interpretation of familiar objects

Research, Photography


©Erik Östensson

The Swedish photographer Erik Östensson is known for his surrealistic, deceptively simple, and unique pictorial compositions. 

His poetically performative images reveal an emotional interplay in the depiction of the interaction between people, objects, and landscapes. Everything appears to be interconnected in harmonious coexistence, whereby new relationships in materials and form develop. Östensson encourages the viewer to discard learned habits of seeing and to look with the eyes of a child, who has only just begun to discover the world. Past notions are superseded, and the meaning of known objects expanded.
