Book on Reinhart Wolf (Architectural Photographer) Available in US?

Discussion in 'Large Format' started by edela_rothman, Mar 18, 2002.

  1. Did Reinhart Wolf (German architectural photographer) ever publish a book of his photographs? Is it available in the U.S.? Is it available abroad, and if so how may I get my hands on it?

    Thanks much to anyone who may know.
     
  2. harry abrams published "villas of venito" back in 1988. there are a
    couple of copies still floating around.
     
  3. In 1.990 I buyed here in Spain a book of Reinhart Wolf called New York.
    Was really stuning photographs of buildings and a interviw with
    R.W.from Andy Warhol.

    photographers place in New York city.

  5. Reinhart Wolf has published several books, though most of them are
    now out-of-print. However, German Schirmer-Mosel Publishers has just
    reissued Wolf's book "Castillos", which is about Spanish Castles.
    German photographic bookshop Lindemanns (www.lindemanns.de) has still
    some copies of German language Die Villen von Venetien (Ville Veneti).
    Wolf's other books include "The Culture of Eating" about Japanese
    food and eating manners (out-ofprint). From New York he has also
    published a book. And still one, the title being "The Faces of
    Buildings". (out-of-print). I am not sure, if this last mentioned is
    the same one as the "New York".

  6. Reinhart Wolf was a german advertising photographer and filmmaker, that
    passed away some ten years ago. He started documenting building in the
    late sixties by photographing monumental brick buildings in Germany
    then the skyscrapers of New York and the Castels of Spain using an
    8x10" and long lenses. He also dit books on the food of China an Japan
    where the superiority of large format food photography is well
    demonstraited. Early on in his carrier he was also a great portraitist.
     
  7. There are several examples of Reinhart Wolf's work in the Sinar
    published large format book series - particularly the Architecture
    edition. And, of course, there is his snowy facade in the Nikkor
    Large Format lens brochure.

  8. His book "New York" is monumental. I also have "Castillos" in small format, w/text in German (iirc). Both of these came from "A Photographer's Place in NYC, which has unfortunately gone out of business.
