By Roselle photographer Wolf Kretlow.
November 1st through January 15th 2014
The show is part of the 350th Anniversary celebration
of the founding of New Jersey.
Kretlow was born in Munich, Germany and came to the United States, settling in Union County in 1966 where he began taking photographs of local scenes, nature and architecture. Wolf is self trained, studying through photography books and by careful observation and conversations on technique with photographers he admires and years of shooting and printing his photographs.
He works with a Sony 35mm SLR digital camera and a variety of lenses, and uses Photoshop and other software programs printing his images on an Epson color printer creating beautifully composed photographs that are very sharp and detailed.
His photographs have been awarded First and Second places in the non-professional Division of the Union County Senior Citizens Art Exhibit. His work has been on the cover of “In and About Union County”, he has photographed events at the Teen Arts Festival, and has documented the NJ State Senior Art show in 2011. He does freelance work for the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, the Historic Midtown Elizabeth District, and Liberty Hall Museum. He is a wedding photographer as well.
