Martin Bogren was born 1967 in Sweden and is now based in Malmo. His photographic practice has developed by a personal documentary tradition in the early 90’s – photographing bands and artists. His first book, The Cardigans - Been It, was published in 1996 after several years touring with the band. Bogren's work became widely known in the mid 2000s as the book Ocean was published – which later toured Scandinavia, France, Poland, Italy and USA. The book was shortlisted for Best Photobook prize in Arles in 2009 and received the honorable prize for the Best Photobook in Sweden the same year. In 2011 his Lowlands series was exhibited at Fotografiska in Stockholm and published by Max Strom. The same year he was awarded the Coup de Cour at the Recontres Arles review in France and the prestigious Scanpix Photography Award in Sweden. His work is represented in several public and private collections including Bibliothèque du Nationale de France, Oregon Fine Art Museum and Fotografiska in Stockholm. He is represented by Fotografiska in Stockholm and by Swedish Photography in Berlin.
