Michael Wolf 'Tokyo Compression' Private View
25 May, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Michael Wolf, Tokyo Compression #156, 2011
Join us for the Private View of Michael Wolf's 'Tokyo Compression' Exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Kingsland Road.
Michael Wolf is known for capturing the hyper-density of the city of Hong Kong in his large-scale photographs of its high-risearchitecture. In his series Tokyo Compression, Wolf centres on the subsurface crush of the Tokyo subway, in which thousands of commuters make their daily journeys between work and home. Photographing individuals pressed against the windows of the crowded trains during the morning rush hour, Wolf’s images are a disquieting metaphor for the conditions of city-dwellers in today’s dense urban centres.
