The series exposes the viewer to row after row of anonymous faces, but it's effective enough just to see that there are actual people behind the knickknacks rather than a succession of robotic machines.Interspersed within the wide shots of the factory are intimate portraits of laborers, giving even more of a human feel to the series. Though Wolf's project is, at times, depressing, especially when you think about all the hard work these people put into their livelihood everyday without much acknowledgement, it is also eye-opening and insightful. It is through the photographer's journalistic eye and his decision to share their faces and work environment that they are finally given some much deserved recognition.michaelwolftherealtoystory16 michaelwolftherealtoystory15 michaelwolftherealtoystory13 michaelwolftherealtoystory8 michaelwolftherealtoystory4 michaelwolftherealtoystory5 michaelwolftherealtoystory6

In the establishment of visual structures, based on the infraction of laws of the projection system of classical perspective, she was mostly interested in the use of viewpoints and visual angles, as she still is today.
