My Occupation Photographer, author, screenwriter
My Bio 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.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Me. I recently completed a memoir of my coming-of-age, provisionally entitled "Five Foot Soldier, Six Foot Army," and am shopping for a publisher. I intend to follow or accompany that with a collection of my Vietnam photos.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Elliot Erwitt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jane Smiley, Michael Connolly, Elmore Leonard, Joan Didion, Mark Twain (really!), Robert Littell... more to come!,
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
