In 2008, photographer Michael Wolf began living part-time in Paris after living in Hong Kong for over a decade. At that time he was apprehensive about the prospect of working in his new home city, concerned about the clichés associated with images of Paris. It was during this period that he produced the series Paris Street Views by essentially sequestering himself in his apartment and appropriating images of Paris from Google Street View.

Michael Wolf is a German photographer who grew up across the Europe and America. His work revolves around mega cities and densely packed areas of humans. His work broadly addresses vernacular themes of this existence through various photographic projects, which tend to isolate a singular aspect.

Michael Wolf's photographic study of Hong Kong, "The Architecture of Density," features photos of the city's buildings photographed without the horizon. "...By using this stylistic solution by eliminating the sky and horizon you give the feeling of unlimited size, because you have no idea how big the building is. It could be 100 stories or 200 stories, it could be a mile long. This illusion of unlimited size really conveys what we experience in megacities."
