About artist/note:

A print from this edition was exhibited in the two person show entitled “In and / or Out” featuring prints by Seiichi Furuya and Michael Wolf at Grisebach Gallery as part of The Dusseldorf Photo Weekend held in February 2016. Reviewed in “3 Standout Shows at Dusseldorf Photo Weekend 2016” Barry Hughes comments: “Wolf’s surrealist portraits capture his subject trapped between moments and space. He convincingly portrays the tension and confinement of his subjects struggling to breathe sealing their urban plight”.

Provenance:

Donated by the artist to support programming at the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
