Hong Kong’s back alleys are often unnoticed against their more glamorous counterparts of dazzling architecture. However, they present an authentic slice of Hong Kong’s grass roots culture. In my opinion they should be nominated as a heritage site. – Michael Wolf
German photographer Michael Wolf photographed the flotsam of the city of Hong Kong, cataloging his finds into typologies of ephemeral urban phenomena. This book features laundry that has fallen from high-rise homes and become stuck in unlikely places, workman's gloves hung out to dry in the street, mops balanced in alleyways, colourful wires and plastic straps carefully rolled up and saved for future use, and Bastard Chairs, repaired and recycled beyond recognition.
Hong Kong Trilogy is part of a total of 9 volumes in which Michael Wolf examines the diverse aspects of street life in Hong Kong.
