Photo exhibition: 'Architecture of Density'

High-rise Hong Kong comes to London.

THE phrase “living on top of one another” has never been so true. German photographer Michael Wolf has captured the immense scale of high-rise living in Asia in his artistic series Architecture of Density.

The large-scale photographs depict the density of residential architecture in Hong Kong, creating visual patterns with a somewhat overwhelming impact.

Selected works from the series will be shown on a large scale in London, with an exhibition at the capital’s Flowers Gallery in January.

Hong Kong, which has more skyscrapers over 150m tall than any other city in the world, has been home to Wolf since 1994.

The photographer, who is known for his documentations of the mega metropolises, took the photographs between 2002 and 2009.

His work has been exhibited all over the world and is featured in permanent collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago.

The London exhibition comes at the same time as the release of the photographer’s new book, Monograph Michael Wolf, Hong Kong Trilogy, published by Peperoni Books, Berlin.

Architecture of Density will show from Jan 17 to Feb 22 at Flowers Gallery on Cork Street. – AFP Relaxnews
