The author has been a photographer since childhood, learning picture taking and darkroom technique literally at his mother’s knee, and a Leica photographer since the 1980’s. A Leica-using friend had suggested that he acquire and read the handful of books by Dr. Paul Wolff that had been published in English, both for the beauty of the images and for the still-relevant technical teachings of this pioneer Leica photographer. Starting with his exited discovery of these books, the author decided to find and collect the totality of Dr. Wolff’s photo books, little appreciating at that time that this quest would take him over 20 years. Along the way he had to immerse himself into 1920’s and 1930’s German history, bone up more specifically on the history of the Leica camera and the E. Leitz company, and cultivate relationships with historians and antiquarians. Two significant dates in the quest: in 1999 the author, with the help of several other historians, published a first attempt at a bibliography and Dr. Wolff retrospective through the Leica Historical Society of America (Dr. Paul Wolff, Pathfinder of Leica Photography). In 2001 an exhibition at the Leica Gallery, New York, "Dr. Wolff, Fifty Years After His Death" enabled the author to view original prints by Dr. Wolff for the first time, and more importantly to meet Thomas Sommer, the director of Dr. Wolff Historisches Bildarchiv in Germany. The relationship that developed between them was mutually beneficial – various book titles could be verified, and often their relevant images appropriately dated. In this way the number of books accumulated rose to over 250 titles, surprising both parties with their photographer’s amazing productivity. The author has also written a dozen or more scholarly articles on Dr. Wolff for Viewfinder, the Journal of LHSA - The International Leica Society.
