Title: Hong Kong Umbrella
Wolf, Lam Yik Fei
Hong Kong's rich vernacular culture is the subject of many works by Michael Wolf. In his new book Hong Kong Umbrella
he turns his attention to countless umbrellas in the Back Alleys of the
metropolis. Stretched and in all colors and patterns they lie, stand or
hang everywhere, protect laundry, goods, market stalls and bikes or
someone lies down underneath to have a snooze.
Lam Yik Fei has photographed the peaceful demonstrators and yet
sometimes violent clashes with the authorities and as in Michael Wolf's
Back Alley pictures the umbrella takes center stage here. Lam Yik Fei's
images of the Umbrella Revolution therefore are incuded in this book.
This is the fourth of 9 volumes, Michael Wolf's Encyclopedia of street
life in Hong Kong's Back Alleys.
