This wonderful 15-minute video profile of photographer Michael Wolf is part of a new series produced by FOAM in Amsterdam. Lens Culture has featured (and interviewed) Michael Wolf since our beginning in 2004. FOAM's production is a big-budget treat, and an insider's view to the working methods and thinking of one of today's more provocative photographers. Enjoy!
