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. Having 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. In his latest collaborative venture with artist Daniel J. Wilson - a smartphone app titled minutiae, they aim to encourage people to document the “in between” moments of their life. They hope to observe a pattern of images that transcend social norms and culture by noticing the importance in the repetitive and seemingly mundane moments.
