Michael Wolf’s upcoming exhibition “Life in Cities” includes works from his series “Tokyo Compression”, “Architecture of Density” and introduces a new body of work, “Series of Unfortunate Events,” also know as “Google Street View,” which will be on view for the very first time in Switzerland at the Christophe Guye Galerie.
In a way distinctly his own, German-born photography artist Wolf manages with breathtaking visuals to capture modern life in all its aspects. Whether visualizing densely populated metropolitan cities with dramatic portraits of facades, capturing the confining crowdedness of their inhabitants, or commenting on the surveyed “private” space we share, Wolf’s works are both artistic and culturally investigative alike, touching on the nerve of time with his intimate yet indicative portrait of 21st century urban life. Life in Cities is synchronized with current group exhibitions at the Museum für Gestaltung, Zurich, showcasing works from Architecture of Density, and Tokyo Compression currently on view at the Noorderlicht Photofestival, Groningen, Netherlands.
