About Suburbia Gone Wild
For the past six years Martin has been photographing model homes built for the newly minted upper middle class in emerging economies around the world. The model home works as a 1:1 scale “no assembly required” model for the potential home buyer that is fully decorated up to and including family photos of John Kerry. The work expands across every continent and includes the suburbs of Bangkok, Shanghai, Bangalore, Cairo, Moscow, Johannesburg, São Paulo, and Mexico City. Suburbia Gone Wild was featured in the Ownership issue of MAS Context. You can check it here.
Thanks so much to Wallo Villacorta and the the crew at Public Works for hosting the event, and to the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation for supporting MAS Context.
Here are a few photographs by Wallo Villacorta from the event that MAS Context organized to celebrate the release of the limited-edition book Suburbia Gone Wild.
