Michael Wolf’s photographs document the architecture and vernacular cultures of mega-cities. Wolf’s body of work, while centering almost exclusively on urban hubs in Asia, captures a universal, rather than city-specific, reality. His “Architecture of Density” series documents building exteriors that have repetitive and symmetric windows. In these photographs, the structures appear as abstract designs, their scale skewed and true function masked. More recently, voyeurism has emerged as a central theme of Wolf’s works. His “Hong Kong Inside Out” series, for example, comprises interior photographs of Hong Kong’s oldest housing complex. The photos of the standardized, 100-square-foot apartments reveal human values and the diverse environments that can exist within rigid confines. Wolf, who studied under Otto Steinert and previously worked as a photojournalist, seeks to explore how people adapt to and connect with rapidly changing environments.
