Vintage silver gelatin print of a superbly photographed flower by the very famous photographers of their time Dr. Paul Wolff & Alfred Tritschler.

In the Weimar Republic, Paul Wolff and Alfred Tritschler were among the most sought-after photographers. Their curiosity for industrialisation, technology, architecture and landscapes engendered a new way of seeing that encapsulated the spirit of modernity.
Paul Wolff was a physician who exchanged the stethoscope for the camera. In 1927, he found his ideal companion in Tritschler and together they founded a photography company in Frankfurt. In the following years, there were hardly any magazines that did not feature pictures by Wolff and Tritschler. In recognition of his photographic achievement, Wolff received the two hundred thousandth Leica model from the Ernst Leitz company in 1936. His fame as the “pioneer of the Leica” shone as far as Japan and the USA.
