In stark contrast to the bright toys they produce, photos by Michael Wolf give a face to those who make them.

German photographer Michael Wolf, who lives in Hong Kong, took photographs of toy factory workers in Southern China for a series of portraits called ‘The Real Toy Story’. The portraits of the often exploited workers are shown in contrast to the bright dolls and figures they produce, and are captured in the factory environment. They help highlight the people who drive the toy industry.
