Marty Wolff -



A Bronx born baby boomer, Marty is a resident of Hawaii, living in Maui. Along the way, he spent a decade based out of Boulder, Colorado. In his teens, he studied Photography and Design at New York City's New School briefly, but the bulk of his photographic experience has been through trial and error. Building upon the idea that 'the world and it's people are quite different from the way they appear', Marty applied his art to the creation of Psychedelic LightShows. During the Cultural Revolution of the late 60s and early 70s, Marty performed in scores of concert extravaganzas. For the next 20 years, he traveled the world as a Rock 'n Roll concert producer, promoter and lighting/stage designer.


His early work with the lightshows lent heavily to his style of everchanging movement of light onstage. His experience with color, shapes and light is reflected in his fine art photography. Marty's experience and ideas about altered states of perception are apparent in his creations. Believing that beyond the appearance of the initial image is the seed of a different truth, he searches for a more mysterious image. Occasionally, he finds himself conscious that his soul is at one with the universe, moment by moment.


These are the moments of creation.
