The work of Michael Wolf

May 09, 2014


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. In 100x100 Wolf took portraits of 100 tenants in Asian cities who reside in a 100x100 square foot box, the photograph shows an entire person in this tiny box and how they come to define themselves in such a crevice. In lost laundry Wolf goes about the city and photographs pieces of laundry astray among vast architectural structures. He has done other projects around flora within cities, street chairs, subway compression, and more direct approaches to architectural photography.
