Série « Wrestlers » / Parcours

Martin Bogren is based in Malmö, Sweden. His work, which stems from a personal documentary tradition, contains a poetic sensibility with a strong sense of place - often dealing with small subjects in everyday life.

In the mid 90s, Martin photographed bands and concerts in a blooming Swedish music tradition and in 1996 he published the book Cardigans - Been it based on his tour photographs. He has since then mainly photographed personal projects combining portraits and documentary work. What is striking is the genuine interest for the human kind. His sign is sensitive, powerful, grainy, contrast-filled photographs.

His recent project Lowland is to be exhibited at Fotografiska in Stockholm in september 2011. A book will also be published by Max Ström.

2008 Martin released his 3rd book Ocean(journal). The serie has been exhibited in Scandinavia, Europé and USA. The book was also shortlisted in the Photo Book contest in Arles 2009 and it recieved the honorable prize for Best Photo Book in Sweden - 2009
