Martin Adolfsson is a Swedish photographer based in New York City. His driving force is curiosity which greatly influences both his commercial and personal work. The experience of living in multiple countries has helped shape his awareness and interest in finding belonging within a cultural context. His personal work focuses on behavioral patterns influenced by identity and environment.
In his first book, Suburbia Gone Wild, Adolfsson explored the search for identity among the new upper middle class in emerging economies around the world.
His most recent project, minutiae is an anti-social media app that helps participants document life’s in-between moments - free from curation, profiles or likes” the project was created together with artist Daniel J. Wilson at New Museums incubator New Inc.
