Nick Dewolf Photo Archive

Recommended Posts

"Nick DeWolf (1928-2006) was an engineer and entrepreneur who founded a company called Teradyne in the USA. In his spare time he was also cataloging his life with a camera. These amazing photos came long before Flickr but thanks to his son-in-law and archivist, Steve Lundeen, we can finally see his deep catalog of photos. So far there are 43,450! "

 

I've taken a look through some of them and he really was an acomplished photographer, photographing and recording events of everyday life all over the world.

Here are some of his Thailand scans from 1972:

I once stumbled upon some great feeds on Flickr by another Dewolf - his of really great recent scenes in Hong Kong that captured exactly some of my own experience there. I wonder, maybe a relative. Great - both guys.

Nice ... the year before I got here. Back in the "Hey you, 1 baht" days. :)

 

The Sanam Luang pics remind me of how filthy it used to be after the weekend market closed. It took the city about 3 days to clean it up before the next opening. And all those bicycles!

Certainly some good images but I wouldn't describe them as "amazing".

Nice pics...I find the one of the girl in the dark shirt ( before the boy doing a flip into the water ) interesting....such a pained exp

ression and one that is so seldom seen in LOS .I wondeer what the man has just told her ? .....my guess would be a) " Teerak,I`ve invited my mia noi to come to live with us,ok na " ......B) "I`ve just mortaged the house,the farm up in Isaan and the pick-up truck to put a bet on the football - its a cert,can`t lose " :grinyes:
