Hong Kong Trilogy by Michael Wolf
Published by Peperoni Books (2013)
Michael Wolf’s adopted home of Hong Kong is rife with subject matter. Within this bustling metropolis, there is always more for the German photographer to discover, especially in the often overlooked details at or just above eye level. In this photo series, Wolf carefully filters out the urban noise to focus on those things left behind – whether intentionally or not. Dozens of mops and gloves positioned to dry form a strange parade, while colourful articles of clothing, perhaps blown off balconies and clotheslines, dangle from wires, pipes and neon signs, stranded in an in-between space, part of the city yet removed from it. Brilliantly framed, the images represent frozen moments and histories.
