Book on Reinhart Wolf (Architectural Photographer) Available in US? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

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.

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 ( 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".

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.

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.

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.
