Michael Wolf is known for his large-scale architectural photographs of Chicago and, to an even greater extent, his adopted home city of Hong Kong. His latest work was similarly created in a big city, but this time, architecture is not Wolf's focus.
In Tokyo Compression, the photographer descends into the Tokyo subway system, vividly capturing the 'daily insanity' of a subterranean world of glass, steel and wall-to-wall people. Tokyo Compression represents another startling look at city life - and another milestone in the life's work of Michael Wolf.
