“The Architect” is the latest photo manipulation by artist and photographer Erik Johansson (featured previously). According to comments by Erik on his official Faecbook page, the image was created over the course of two months and involves numerous individual elements photographed and put together piece by piece.

Johansson also says that all parts of the image were real, most were shot outdoors but some of the finer details were shot indoor as well. For those interested in giclée prints, they are available here.
