Stunning Photos of Architectural Density in Hong Kong
With seven million people, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. While the plain numbers may not sound too intriguing, the pictures look absolutely mind-blowing. In his ‘Architecture of Density’ photo series, German photographer Michael Wolf explores the incredible urban landscapes of Hong Kong.
Stripped of all outer context like sky or ground, his photos only show fragments of massive blocks of flats, both crumbling or still in construction. The way their monotone and repetitive details occupy the whole frame is mesmerizing, and makes you think about all the walls we build around ourselves.
