Hong Kong : front door/back door by Michael Wolf( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 177 libraries worldwide
This visual journey takes us through the narrow streets and broad cityscapes of one of the most heavily populated corners of the globe. Yet it is also an insight into a peculiarly unpopulated place, inhabited only by the traces of city dwellers. The dense architecture and dark black alleys of Hong Kong are home to strangely animated objects that at first glance appear to be the random detritus of the manmade world. But under the close scrutiny of Michael Wolf's photographic eye, these articles become fascinating installation pieces, while the abstract patterns on high-rise blocks reveal the beauty and order that underlie the city's apparent chaos. Wolf's photographs reflect a deft combination of Western aesthetic formalism and Eastern wabi-sabi. The accompanying texts explore the choices people make of lifestyle, forms, functions, identity and design, as well as the notion of Hong Kong as a brand

Michael wolf : architecture of density by Michael Wolf( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
Stunning and sobering, the photographs of high-rise apartment buildings in Hong Kong by German photographer Michael Wolf reveal his personal fascination with life in mega-cities. Having lived there for several years, Wolf began to document Hong Kong's extreme development and complex urban dynamics, and how these factors play into the relationships between public and private space, anonymity and individuality, in one of the most densely populated cities on the planet. His close-up view takes the repetitive facades and colourful palettes out of their architectural context, instead offering urban patterns. With an introduction by Ernest Chui and essay by Natasha Egan
Small god, big city : earth god shrines in urban Hong Kong = Fan hua du shi xiao xiao shen : Xianggang shi qu zhong de tu di shen wei by Michael Wolf( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Following the success of Hong Kong Corner Houses, German photographer Michael Wolf continues his collaboration with Hong Kong University Press to produce Small God, Big City . Wolf again uses his creative eye to draw attention to overlooked objects in the visually rich urban environment of Hong Kong. This time the object is the Earth God shrine, found commonly by the doorways of shops and homes throughout Hong Kong. Through his visually stimulating and thought-provoking photographs, Wolf challenges our sensitivity to seemingly familiar everyday things. An interpretative text for the photographs is authored by two familiar names: Lee Ho Yin and Lynne DiStefano, who are well-known academics and practitioners of heritage conservation in Hong Kong. The text is a highly readable curatorial essay that leads readers to a better understanding of the topic and the meaning behind Wolf 's photographs of Earth God shrines in urban Hong Kong. The topic of this book is timely, given the vulnerability of traditional beliefs and practices in an increasingly urbanized Hong Kong. It is hoped that Small God, Big City will provoke deeper thoughts on who we are and what we believe in this modern world
