Hong Kong by Michael Wolf
Book DescriptionThis is a surprising and at times shocking visual journey through the narrow streets and urban wastelands of one of the most densely populated corners of the world. Hong Kong resident and World Press Photo Award-winning photographer Michael Wolf captures the lives and living conditions of his neighbours through the traces they leave on the city's dense architecture and dark back alleys. Supported by thought-provoking texts by art critic Kenneth Baker and designer Douglas Young, this is a humanistic tribute to the ingenuity of city-dwellers.
