Overwhelming city landscapemade by Photographer Michael Wolf, presents residential towers of Hong Kong. Incalculable number of windows made a view fascinating and terrifying at the same time.
The Artist focused in his works on life in mega cities and documents the architecture and the culture of metropolises. His work has been exhibited in numerous locations and published in many books.
Hong Kong residential towers have brutal architecture, architecture of density and lost of unit. Wolf eliminates the sky and horizon line to flatten each image and turn these façades into seemingly never-ending abstractions.
Transformation of the structure of Chinese society is easy to be seen on architectural pictures, it is the mirror of the economic and social changes. Overwhelming power, built of small parts.
It’s aggressive and often chaotic architecture and urban planning is the clock of their time, the portrait. Fascinating, isn’t it?
I recommend you to visit Michael Wolf website to read about his inspirations and goals and watch more of his works.
