Tokyo Compression Three.
Photographs by Michael Wolf.
112 pp., color illustrations throughout, 8x10".
With 'Tokyo Compression' Michael Wolf struck a nerve. His portraits of people who are on their way in the Tokyo subway, constrained between glass, steel and fellow travelers, have won many awards and were shown in exhibitions around the globe. The first edition of this book was sold out after a few weeks. And the topic kept haunting Michael Wolf as well. He returned to Tokyo in order to immerse in the subsurface insanity once again and this time even deeper. Now with 'Tokyo Compression Three' the third, completely revised edition is published, with many so far unreleased images and an entirely new 'hidden track' at the end of the book.
