Architecture of density

Photographer Michael Wolf died at his home in Hong Kong this week. He was 64. Even if you don’t recognize the name, I am sure that many of you have seen his work. Perhaps his most famous project was “Architecture of Density”, which had him documenting Hong Kong’s extreme urban density from 2003 to 2014. Here is a photo (taken from his website):

Michael was born in Germany, but grew up in Canada (he went to school in midtown Toronto) and in the United States. He eventually settled in Hong Kong and Paris — both of which became muses for his work. Michael made a career out of documenting cities and the life that happens within them. If you aren’t familiar with his work, I would encourage you to check it out here.
