Call for Photographers

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

It's time to dust of a project I've been working on for a couple of years. The Portraitist is a collaborative effort between myself and another photographer to create a dual self-portrait of ourselves.

In order to make the exercise a bit more fun I established a few rules:

-The photographer is free to take my portrait at any time of the day
-The photographer is free to take my portrait in any environment he or she prefers
-The photographer is free to take my portrait using any medium
-The photographer is free to take my portrait in any way he or she choose

My portrait of the photographer follow these rules:
-The portrait must be taken using the same equipment, light setup and background.

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.

Summer in America

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

Summer is officially over, at least here in the US. During the last three months I had the opportunity to visit a couple of new places while on the road. I usually try to stay an extra day or two when I'm out on assignments in order to discover the area in my own pace.

This Summer I stopped at Willie's Fish Pond in Virginia (which I first thought was a sea food restaurant). I met a homeless man who perform a flawless dance routine to Chic's Le Freak at a bus stop in Detroit (he was not waiting for the bus) and shot a tremendous amount of images of skyscrapers in Lower Manhattan (don't know why, I just love it). Oh and I went Upstate as well.... but more on that next time.
