Beauty Of Metro Travelers By Michael Wolf

Michael Wolf captured in his series Tokyo Compressions the weird and rough beauty of metro travelers in Tokyo. The Hong Kong-based photographer used up time study the civilization of Tokyo; focus especially on the persons who expend their every day travel crowded onto the city subway trains. Wolf says the photographs represent “chiefly the tragedy of the human condition. What you see is not the result of a natural catastrophe. Man is responsible for this himself—a dreadful system for people, and by people.”
