Cheung Chau Sunrises, 2018

From his home on the Hong Kong island of Cheung Chau, Michael Wolf photographed sunrises every morning between 5.30 and 7.30 am. Here, on the roof of this three-story house, the photographer meditates regularly during these early hours. This series grew into a conceptual work. At first glance, the spectacle of light and colour seems to clash with Wolf’s previous series of images, social critiques reflecting living conditions in overpopulated megacities, and concomitant issues of mass consumption and environmental pollution. And now, sun, clouds, and the vastness of the sky and sea, divided by a horizon. It is the inherent optimism of the dawn of a new day, an image of untouched nature.
