Suburbia Gone Wild
How suburbia is conquering the world
A project by Martin ADOLFSSON
44 suburbs, 8 countries, 5 continents, 2,600 + photos.
A completely intriguing look at the symmetry of suburbia. The book is much more than arranged photos, it is a thought provoking piece of art. Interestingly, Adolfsson, a professional photographer, shot each photo with a handheld SLR camera -- no post photo alterations and no special lighting. The images are completely raw.
Photographer Martin Adolfsson’s project Suburbia Gone Wild provides a fascinating window into one of the greatest structural changes of the 21st-century, the rise of the upper middle class in the developing world. Exploring the search for identity among this new strata of society, Adolfsson takes us where they live: the shiny, newly-developed suburbs surrounding the new economic centers of the world. He documents a curious phenomenon that looks more and more like the constructed world of The Truman Show.
