Cheung Chau Sunrises.

Photographs by Michael Wolf.
Buchkunst Berlin, 2019. In German, English. 104 pp., 80, 8¾x11¼".



Publisher's Description

In his series of works, photographer Michael Wolf shows the immense natural spectacle of the sunrises over the Hong Kong Bay. With this he expands his photography into the dimension of painting and deals with the motif of freedom.

Michael Wolf photographed sunrises in two years from his apartment on the Hong Kong island of Cheung Chau - every morning between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. In this context, he developed the concept of a new painterly and topographical photo series.

The fascinating recordings of these timeless and ephemeral natural spectacles appear as an alternative to Michael Wolf's previous work, which addresses the lack of space and the adaptation to economic conditions in large cities. In the context of his socially critical work, Wolf's “discovery of the sky and the horizon” should be understood as a design for freedom, in a place that is synonymous with the extreme working and living conditions.

The photographs of 'Cheung Chau Sunrises' were shown for the first time within the retrospective exhibition 'Life in Cities' at the Haus der Photographie in Hamburg.
