Michael Wolf - Architecture of densitiy

Michael Wolf is a German artist living in Hong Kong. Michael Wolf’s work examines life in the layered urban landscape, addressing juxtapositions of public and private space.  

In this series, Wolf photographed of Hong Kong's tall buildings in a way that depicted them as "abstractions, never-ending repetitions of architectural patterns. The photographs excluded the sky and the ground, thereby emphasizing the vertical lines of the buildings. The images have been compared with those of Andreas Gursky and Candida Höfer.

Having lived in Hong Kong my self and being surrounded by these very cramped space to the point of excruciation, Michael Wolf does something interesting and creates space of emptiness and its almost peaceful.  To me its visually calming and captivating.
