I’ve been running sci-fi-o-rama.com seriously for over a year now and have gathered together and annotated a fairly wide range of material totaling over 200 posts (thanks for all the support!). Obviously some of the featured work I have a fondness for more than others as I’m sure you do to…

What I’m getting at is that this post then – the work of Swedish Artist Simen Johan – is, bar none, is my absolute favourite, I could simply stare at his haunting art for hours, it’s both disturbingly eeire and majestically uplifting, firing a range of emotions. You may also notice that I’ve tagged this with Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy – and you might think what is SF about this work? well personally I’ve always seen the medium as spanning far beyond it’s conventional preconceptions of ray-guns, flying saucers and transmorphing robots. Science Fiction is not just future gazing and escapism it’s about crafting and exploring alternate realities, what ever they might be…

Simen’s work is a merger of traditional film photography with digital methods creating a composite image made up of sometimes as many as 100 negatives. See the full set of  ‘Until the Kingdom Comes’ at Simen’s home site: http://ow.ly/kaMI
