curious moments 2015

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

2015 is coming to an end so I decided to collect 12 moments from 2015 that caught my eye because they were weird, fun, strange or just beautiful (or all of those).
The prints are available through this webshop, you can also click on an image and it will take you directly to the shop. All images are printed in 24x36" (60x90 cm) on semi-gloss archival paper and available in open edition to help keep the prices down a bit. For any questions just shoot me an email 

Portraits from California

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

After months of silence, it's time for an update! The last couple of months have been quite extraordinary in many ways (hence the lack of updates). The first trip of the year went to California - to photograph a group of very inspiring artists and entrepreneurs (escaping the dreadful NYC winter didn't hurt either). Next stop was Brazil to shoot Architecture at the incredible art center Inhotim, located in the middle of the Brazilian jungle (in the State of Minas Gerais).

After a few frenetic days in NYC, I was off to Hong Kong and Macau- where I met and photographed rooftop garden activists, eccentric chefs and eventually won $3 at the Greyhound Racing track in Macau. Recently, I went to Panama City for an architecture and travel story for enRoute (Air Canada's) in-flight magazine. More work from all these trips will eventually appear here - but let's start with some of my favorite frames from California:

Goodbye Los Angeles - Hello Snow blizzard

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

Today is my final day here in Los Angeles, I've managed to escape the snowmageddon (or whatever the weather channel calls it) that's been keeping New York hostage for almost a month. I've shot architecture and environmental portraits of some inspiring people such as Architect Peter Demaria who is the architect behind the building below. And Carolina Fontoura who creates beautiful chandeliers out of recycled bicycle parts. Tomorrow I'm flying back to New York to location scout for a shoot this coming week.

Goodbye São Paulo, Hello Los Angeles

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

Today is my last day here in São Paulo, I've shot commissioned work and some new personal work that I'm really happy with. It's a city that doesn't give away anything for free (both in esthetic and monetary terms.) What always strikes me when I'm here is how extremely segregated the city is and the lack of public space that people from all parts of society have access to. Social interactions, especially among the wealthy seems to be dedicated to well-guarded clusters that requires membership. It will be interesting to see if these structures will remain unaffected as the lower and middle-class slowly gains more economic power.

Tomorrow I'm off to Los Angles for a week of intense work, looking forward to the cool breeze of the Pacific Ocean!
