Peeping Photographer Focuses on Chicago’s Private Parts

11.05.09 Will Sherman

Armed with a powerful telephoto lens, Michael Wolf captures the unknowing inhabitants of Chicago’s skyscrapers. The voyeuristic project grew out of an ongoing series of cityscape shots, tightly cropped so as to lose all points of reference besides the building’s geometry. Recently published as “The Transparent City,” Wolf’s collection of photos, an invasion of privacy for some and a reminder to shut your blinds for others, will be exhibited from November 7th through January 21st at Aperture Gallery, 547 West 27th Street, 4th floor.
