If you thought Muni was crowded, check out superstar photographer (and UC Berkeley alum) Michael Wolf's latest exhibition Metropolis, opening Thursday night at the Robert Koch Gallery. His street pictures of Paris are fascinating, spooky and very modern (we won't spoil things by telling you how they were made). But it's his Tokyo Compression series that will bring gasps of recognition to anyone who battles the crowds on mass transit. Check out these two fascinating looks at urban density and privacy, right here in our own fair city.
