//WEEKLY ART REPORT
Michael Wolf is a German photographer, who lives and works in Asia. What distinguishes him from others is his acute ability to find the symbolic value in those seemingly insignificant details that so often go unnoticed. Michael Wolf’s work examines life in the layered urban landscape, addressing juxtapositions of public and private space, anonymity and individuality, history and modern development. I a diverse array of photographic projects, from street views, portraits of the citizens, dizzying architectural landscapes, Wolf explores the density of city life. The colors, forms and shapes he captures collide in a spectacular way within his frames. The colossal views and immense structures that Wolf captures in a seemingly light and vivid way leave me inspired and with an intense urge to travel.
