With seven million people, Hong Kong is the 4th most densely populated places in the world. However, plain numbers never tell the full story. In his ‘Architecture of Density’ photo series, German photographer Michael Wolf explores the jaw-dropping urban landscapes of Hong Kong. He rids his photographs of any context, removing any sky or horizon line from the frame and flattening the space until it becomes a relentless abstraction of urban expansion, with no escape for the viewer’s eye. Infinite and haunting.

Harry Holland is a British painter whose work has been acquired by numerous prominent collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Tate Gallery, the British Museum, along with many others. His paintings evoke references to neoclassicism and romanticism with nudes in arranged in dreamlike and sometimes verging on heroic settings. In his painting Raft Three, one recognizes a distinct allusion to Géricault’s masterwork Raft of the Medusa, while other works like Skyfly remind the viewer of romantic painters like Girodet.
