Architecture of Density, Hong Kong
Photojournalist Michael Wolf is the pure definition of international artist. Wolf was born in Germany, then raised in Canada and the United States before working a decade in China under the magazine Stern. His work most often takes a voyeuristic stance, removing context of location, therefore, allowing the observer to focus on patterns or subjects that might otherwise go unnoticed. In these photographs, part of a larger series titled, Architecture of Density, Wolf displays Hong Kong as vacant and deserted--very atypical of most assumptions of this city. The sheer density of the structure is breathtaking, and reminds us of how very different other cultures live, breathe and get through the day.
