Michael Wolf's Tokyo Compression featured in The Guardian
Michael Wolf's Tokyo Compression series is included in The Guradian's recent piece on GETXOPHOTO 2020. This year's edition of the festival approached the exploration of public space (both physical and digital).
Michael Wolf took photographs at the Shimo-Kitazawa station on the Tokyo subway, focusing his attention on the claustrophobic experience of using public transport at rush hour. Wolf’s photographs reveal the alienation of urban life but also stress the need for critical opinion, for imagining alternatives in the transit and distribution of public space. This is a task that, supported by the urban challenges posed by the pandemic, can allow us to glimpse new ways of living together and inhabiting urban spaces.
