Michael Wolf 吳爾夫 (1954—2019)


What makes Michael Wolf stand above other photographers is his knack for capturing things that appear mundane and inconsequential within the chaos of the urban environment, and turning them into thought-provoking discoveries. Wolf makes us look at and appreciate the surprising multitude of delightful urban phenomena that we tend to overlook or under appreciate. By this means, he challenges the assumptions we have about the city we think we know. Wolf’s publications include Hong Kong Corner Houses and Small God, Big City: Earth God Shrines in Urban Hong Kong.
