Erik Johansen’s pictures are worth more than a thousand words. The German born, Swedish based photographer enjoys nothing more than manipulating the mind with his tantalizing visual imagery. His vivid imagination and surreal forms create brilliant pictures of surreal moments, all with a hint of the believable. Originally a computer engineering student, Johansson currently works on personal projects as well as commissioned ones.
They say that the brightest spark burns best when circumstances are at their worst.
“Tales from Earthsea” (ゲド戦記 Gedo Senki, lit. Ged’s War Chronicles) is a 2006 Japanese animated fantasy film directed by Gorō Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli.
The film is based on a combination of plots and characters from the first four books of Ursula K. Le Guin’s “Earthsea” series: “A Wizard of Earthsea”, “The Tombs of Atuan”, “The Farthest Shore” and “Tehanu”; however, the film’s title is named from the collection of short stories, “Tales from Earthsea”, made in 2001. The change of plot was “entirely different” according to the author Ursula K. Le Guin who told director Gorō Miyazaki, “It is not my book. It is your movie.” The film is inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s manga “The Journey of Shuna”.
