Private View: Michael Wolf - Bottrop-Ebel 76

Michael Wolf, from the series Bottrop Ebel 76

Flowers Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition by Hong Kong based German photographer Michael Wolf, revisiting his very first complete photographic series.

Bottrop-Ebel 76 is a series of photographs taken by Wolf in a small coal mining village in the Ruhr District, Germany in 1976, while he was still a student at the Folkswangschule für Gestaltung. Wolf sought to capture the collective identity of the community, documenting their way of life in a changing industrial region, where the future was looking uncertain and unemployment was on the rise. He returned often to the district during a year of intensive research, even living there for a time, in order to get closer to his subject matter.

Join us for the Private View of Michael Wolf's Bottrop-Ebel 76 at Flowers Gallery, 82 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DP on Thursday 10 May 6-8pm.
