Tokyo Compression – Photographing subway passengers during rush hours

2016-09-19 // japan photography popular

With his Tokyo Compression series, the German photographer Michael Wolf wanted to capture the rush hours in the Tokyo subway, photographing Japanese commuters compressed against each other. Some amazing portraits where everyone seems lost in his own world to escape the crowd that surrounds him, and where condensation reinforces the feeling of claustrophobia. I invite you to discover the complete series, but also the other projects of Michael Wolf, in his portfolio.
