Sound & Sights is Alon Wolf's photography debut in which he shares images from around the world as he follows his passion, sound. Alon Wolf is the founder and CEO of Magico LLC, manufacturer of the world's finest loudspeakers. Magico's products are sold globally to music lovers and professionals alike. Magico's products have been featured in publications all around the globe such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and The London Times.
Born in 1963 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Alon Wolf studied classical guitar and violin, as well as fine art from a young age. After his military service in the Israeli Air Force, Alon left Israel to study music and industrial design in the United States. While pursuing his passion for design, he remained closely tied to his musical interests and began building speakers in his basement.
Alon's background in industrial design and his experience working as a 3D artist on films such as Antz and Shrek as well as numerous video games and TV commercials have allowed him to experiment in innovative loudspeaker design. Following Magico’s debut at the CES in 2004, Magico gradually transformed from a hobby to an established company. Today, Magico has established itself as an industry leader known for its uncompromising approach to design and sound.
Magico's loudspeakers have challenged conventional design methodologies, and has influenced speaker design in industries beyond the audiophile community such as the automobile industry and the consumer electronic industry. Magico’s pursuit of perfection and accuracy in sound reproduction has garnered Magico a place in the Absolute Sound’s “12 Most Significant Loudspeakers of All Time”, as well as numerous other awards in the industry.
Alon's pursuit for perfection is evident in every aspect of Magico, including product photography. Alon’s desire to capture his products’ distinction for those who had not yet heard them led him to focus on presenting his products impactfully in photographs.
Alon's experience photographing Magico products combined with his interest in Fine Art Photography has taken him out of the studio. Today, Alon takes his camera with him exploring sights and sounds as he travels the globe. His landscapes and cityscapes are taken with the same passion and attention to detail that has garnered Alon acclaim in design and sound.
