Bernard Pierre Wolff Edit Profile
Since 1969 Wolff has been a freelance photographer and graphic designer for UNICEF and other United Nations agencies, as well as the Foreign Policy Association in New York City. His work has taken him on extensive travels to developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America on United Nations photo missions. From 1959 to 1968 he worked as art director for the Foreign Policy Association.
His main subjects are "characters in the urban landscape, the marginal, unconventional, outcast or bizarre, the cultural confusion of the streets in the world's great cities: New York, Delhi, Benares, Quito, Rome and the towns of industrialized and developing countries." He makes use of "lines, curves and shadows to emphasize the intrinsic design of socially disorganized subjects. [There is a] strong element of social metaphor."
