Michael Wolf's new Street View project—a natural progression of explorations of population density, privacy, and architecture—uses Google's street view technology to reveal the more subtle, symbolic aspects of the urban experience. Departing from his typical large-format photographs, Wolf spent hundreds of hours searching the world by mouse-click rather than through his lens, the results of which are as timely as they are remarkable.

Michael Wolf (born in Munich, 1954) grew up in the United States, and studied at UC Berkeley and with Otto Steinert at the University of Essen in Germany. Two previous books—Sitting in China (2002) and Hong Kong, Front Door/Back Door (2005)—feature his much acclaimed photographs of China. Wolf lives and works in Hong Kong and Paris.
