Architect Anda Andrei for Monocle

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

I had the pleasure to photograph architect and designer Anda Andrei for this months issue of Monocle. We talked politics, future of hospitality and Nicolae Ceaușescu’s very eclectic taste in design.

Spaceport America

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

New Mexico is an interesting state, it offers an odd mix of old men with pony-tails and nuclear test facilities scattered around the state. However, since a couple of years back it has it's very own Spaceport which will start sending (very wealthy) tourists into orbit during later this year.

The story was shot for Icon magazine... and the oxidized look is by design according to Foster and Partners.

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

Over the next couple of weeks I plan to post a couple of spread sheets from shoots I've done over the last couple of months. First out is a story about the transformation of Panamá City that I shot for enRoute. I've also included a couple of my favorites images which didn't make the final edit. The full story can be found here.

Work in Progress

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

Here's some work in progress from a side project I've been working on during some time. Prints are available for sale, please inquire to martin@martinadolfsson.com

Visual Structures is a series of digital compositions consisting of urban elements from Jakarta, Tokyo, Mumbai, New York, Chicago, São Paulo, Dubai, London, Miami and Seattle. Together they form an endless urban landscape of glass, steel and reinforced concrete, cast in a seemingly repetitive universal framework. 

While statues of Kings and Emperors were the manifest of old-world sovereignty, these structures come to represent the symbol of new-world Globalization. These vertical structures are not only a sign of rising prosperity but more importantly a coming-of-age symbol, especially in developing nations. Visual Structures is the representation of our modern civilization’s steady march towards global homogenization.

Star Architect Peter Marino

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

It's not very often you get to photograph someone dressed in leather from head to toe who goes by the name of "The Pedro". Especially not on the 36th floor of a corporate building in Midtown Manhattan during daytime. However when you do, it's comforting to know that the subject, Architect Peter Marino is a genuinely nice guy to work with. If you ever visited a high-end retailer such as Dior, Prada or Gucci chances are very high that Peter designed that store.
