Suburbia Gone Wild (2006-2011)

A number of countries that didn't yet have a middle class twenty years ago have rapidly grown into economic and industrial powerhouses. Martin Adolfsson photographed the model dwellings that are rising in suburbs as advertisements for a ready-made lifestyle sale. They are to be found in in up-and-coming countries like Brazil, China and Mexico, but by removing the tell-tale geographic clues Adolfsson underscores their uniformity. The rise of suburbia, as he lets us see, is a worldwide phenomenon.
