Venture Inside China's Tiny Public Housing Cubes

The dwellers of the Shek Kip Mei Estate public housing project in Hong Kong occupy just ten feet by ten feet of living space. The humble rooms that originally served as relocation units for fire victims in the 1950s are furnished with bunk beds. The crowded units balloon with dozens of plastic bags for all-purpose storage and are decorated with a varying amount of patriotic paraphernalia. Like his Real Fake Art project, photographer Michael Wolf’s series 100 X 100 is a compelling look at an individual facet of contemporary Chinese society. Meet the mostly smiling residents in our gallery.
