Stunning and sobering, the photographs of high-rise apartment buildings in Hong Kong by German photographer Michael Wolf reveals his personal fascination with life in mega-cities. Having lived there for several years, Wolf began to document Hong Kong's extreme development and complex urban dynamics, and how these factors play into the relationships between public and private space, anonymity and individuality, in one of the most densely populated cities on the planet. His close-up view takes the repetitive façades and colourful palettes out of their architectural context, instead offering urban patterns. With an introduction by Ernest Chui and essay by Natasha Egan. This book formed the first part of Wolf's now out-of-print INSIDE/OUTSIDE book.
