About the Book
A collection of photographs from three continents celebrating what childhood means around the world. Over the last fifty years, photojournalist and author Wolf created these candid images of children and babies wherever he found them in Asia, Europe and North America. If you like children, here they are in all their heart-warming glory.
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.
