Link to web site

"YOU could be fooled into thinking this image had been digitally altered, as row upon row of apartments seem to stretch to infinity. But these are real tower blocks in Hong Kong, documented by photographer Michael Wolf in his series 'Architecture of Density'.

"After deliberately leaving the sky and ground out of frame to create the illusion of indeterminable size, Wolf says:
