In Informal Solutions, Michael Wolf presents the many manifestations of culture and life in Hong Kong’s back alley, where spaces are utilized in the most imaginative and unexpected ways. Through his discerning eyes, objects captured in photographs appear to transcend from their humble utilitarian origin to magnificent works of urban installation art. It seems inevitable that city authorities will one day sanitize the creative chaos in Hong Kong’s back alleys. But until then, we share the joy and jubilation with Michael Wolf in celebrating Hong Kong’s dynamic back alleys. Michael Wolf’s latest book will be launched at Tai Hei Cha Don on 22 January 2016.
