Around 1930, the trained physician and selftaught photographer Dr. Paul Wolff (1887–1951) was among the most successful German photographers. He positioned himself at an early stage as a »pioneer of the Leica« and achieved international renown through his highly-regarded guidebooks. Together with his business partner Alfred Tritschler, Wolff satisfied the pictorial desires of his time: from architecture photography to advertising and illustration, from reportage to propaganda. Up to the end of the war, Dr. Paul Wolff & Tritschler was a »brand« with its seat in Frankfurt am Main and set standards in the then still young field of industrial photography. The first comprehensive book on Wolff & Tritschler recapitulates the work and careers of both photographers against the backdrop of a politically, socially, and artistically turbulent period and thus closes a gap in the discourse on photography in the 1920s to 1940s.
