Marvin Wolf began his life in photojournalism as an Army combat photographer in VIetnam. His career took an unexpected turn when he was awarded a battlefield commision as an infantry officer, but he never stopped shooting pictures. After leaving the service he completed his college education, then taught photojournalism parttime while accepting assignments from a multitude of magazines and corporate clients. Reunited with his teenaged daughter in 1984, he segued into writing books because the responsibilities of fatherhood limited his travel. Even after a dozen books and several screenplays, however, photography remains his passion. No longer soliciting assignments, Wolf occupies himself with self-directed projects, a balance of mining his extensive files and creating new images.
