“Though Paul Wolff formally studied medicine and became a physician, the French government that controlled Strasbourg after World War I restricted him from practicing. As a result, he turned to photography, an interest that had begun in his teenage years. Wolff had published his first portfolio, which contained romantic views of his hometown, in 1914. After the war he first worked as a camera operator, then as a free-lance photographer. In 1924 he co-founded the successful firm Wolff & Tritchler with his partner Alfred Tritchler.

Wolff won a Leica camera at the Frankfurt Photography Exhibition, which he then used to illustrate several books he wrote to popularize techniques using the small-format instrument. Not one to limit his subject matter, Wolff made portraits, landscapes, and still lifes”
