Photographer Martin Adolfsson‘s latest project “Suburbia Gone Wild” explores the rise of the upper middle class within the twenty-first century developing world. Traveling across all continents and various suburbs in cities like Shanghai, Moscow, Johannesburg, Bangalore, Cairo, Sao Paulo and Mexico City, and using his handheld SLR camera, Adolfsson captured multiple communities of model homes on the verge of transition. “Within the past two decades we’ve seen a huge shift in the balance of economic power,” Adolfsson says. “Countries that didn’t have a middle class 20 years ago have seen a rapid transformation from an agricultural economy to an industrial-based economy, so much so that a sizable percentage of the population now belongs to the middle class.” Adolfsson is part of the Review Santa Fe 100.
