About This Image

Photographer's stamp on verso. Caption on verso, "Twixt Heaven and Earth A Silver Line Doth Stretch". Crease in print visible in raking light.

Wolff was born in 1887 in Mulhouse, which was then in Germany, and studied medicine and became a physician; however, following WWI he was restricted from practicing and decided to follow his earlier interest in photography. Though he used large format cameras, he was an early proponent of small 35 mm format and the Leica camera. Much of what he photographed was street photography, but he also did portraits, landscapes and still lifes. In 1924 he co-founded the successful firm Wolff & Tritchler with his partner Alfred Tritchler. He published numerous books and died in 1951 in Frankfurt.
