M97 is pleased to present Paris Rooftops, an exhibition of Michael Wolf’s newest body of work. Paris Rooftops is a continuation of Wolf’s life-long fascination with architecture and urban life, this time taking the viewer to Paris, where he moved part-time with his family in 2008.

Having lived in Hong Kong since the 1990s and having photographed mostly in Asia up until that point, Wolf took in his new Parisian surroundings with cautious curiosity, making a conscious decision to stay away from the quintessentially Parisian sights that adorn travel books. During his exploration of the city, Wolf discovered the uniqueness and beauty of its zinc roofs. With a strong sense of color and his characteristic genius for composition and abstraction, Wolf captures the density and humanity of urban life through a city’s architecture, and manages to astound the viewer with a fresh perspective, as he had done so brilliantly in Hong Kong with his highly-acclaimed Architecture of Density.

M97荣幸地宣布新展《巴黎屋顶》,这是摄影艺术家迈克尔·沃尔夫的最新系列作品。《巴黎屋顶》是沃尔夫长久以来对建筑和都市生活的痴迷和探索的延续。这个系列以巴黎为对象,沃尔夫自2008年开始每年都有一部分时间和他的家人在这个城市里度过。

自90年代开始,沃尔夫开始在香港生活,并以亚洲为主要的拍摄对象。如今,他以谨慎的好奇心吸收着巴黎周遭的环境,特意避开旅行指南中频繁出现的典型的巴黎景观。在探索巴黎的过程中,沃尔夫发现了这座城市锌皮屋顶独特的美。沃尔夫以他对色彩强烈的感知以及对结构构图和抽象化独到的创作手法,通过一座城的建筑来捕捉其中都市生活的密度和它人性的一面。这一系列作品在继于香港拍摄的知名系列《建筑密度》之后,再次给观众带来新鲜的视角。
