Michael Wolf and Architecture of Density

I recently discovered the photography of Michael Wolf and his exhibit Architecture of Density, focusing on the urban landscape and culture of Hong Kong.

To me, these images are like peering over the edge a high-rise balcony that has no guardrail. The view is amazing, but you get kind of nervous realizing how small a single person is in comparison to the walls looming above and below you.

In other photo exhibits, Wolf documents the people who live in this landscape, such as this woman in a toy factory and this painter.

My thanks to Michael Wolf for allowing me to share his extraordinary images.
