MICHAEL WOLF

Michael Wolf’s photographs feel like voyeuristic observations as well as the records architectural standards in different cities and cultures around the world. His photographs capturing the incredibly numerous high-rise apartment buildings in Hong Kong are perhaps some of his best known works, almost shocking in their revelation of the density of the structures.. His work in Chicago captured the transparency of the city’s buildings, in Paris, the historic rooftops, and in Tokyo, the narratives of faces pressed against the glass of subway cars, cheeks pressed against the condensation. From his unique perspective, Wolf  produced a body of work which deals with the complex reality of contemporary city life in a way that defies categorization, in direct response to the particularities of the places he captured.  

Michael Wolf studied at the University of California, Berkeley, before moving on to study with Otto Steinert. He has been part of exhibitions around the world - at Stedelijk Museum, Breda Netherlands, Institut Valencia D’Art Modern, Valencia, Spain, Centre Photographique Rouen Normandie, Normandy, France, and galleries in France, China, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Korea, Turkey, Sweden, Australia, The United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Italy, and across North America. In addition his photographs have been included in many museum exhibitions including a traveling retrospective exhibition that was shown at Urania, Berlin, Germany, House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, Germany; Fondazione Stelline, Milano, Italy, Fotomuseum den Haag, the Hague, Netherlands, and Les Rencontres d’ Arles, Arles, France. Wolf’s photographs are part of the permanent collections of museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY, The San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose, CA, and Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, NY among others, and many private collections across the world. Michael Wolf passed away in 2019.
