German photographer Michael Wolf was known for his works about skyscrapers in Hong Kong.
Wolf worked as a former photojournalist in Europe and the US. In 1994 he moved to Hong Kong, where he observed and depicted this metropolis’s dense architecture and minutiae with his lens, to showcase people’s daily life and to document things that are vanishing in the process of urban construction.
He had published his photo series in more than 30 photobooks, including his celebrated series Architecture of Density, Real Fake Art, Tokyo Compression, Informal Solutions, Hong Kong: Front Door/Back Door, and Sitting in China.
Wolf died in Hong Kong in 2019, at the age of 64.
