      One lure of taking photographs is that you get to hide behind a machine and safely observe the world. You get to look, without being seen. This was especially true in the early days of photography when photographic equipment was bulky and when exposing the film or plate required a dark area at the back of the camera.   Aside from his work as a designer, Wolf is also a collector of vintage photographs, a celebrated photographer, and the author of two previous books on his own design work and inspiration. Frida Kahlo: Photographs of Myself and Others is the first book to capture both his love of art history and his talents as a curator of vintage : Vincente Wolf.
