From nocturnal scenes of industry to views of pristine landscape, Scholz Rittermann’s work spans opposite ends of our environment.

His work is held in over one hundred public, private, and corporate collections, including MoMA, New York and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, France. Scholz Rittermann exhibits in national and international venues, and was honored with a mid-career survey at the Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego, which published the monograph “Navigating by Light.” He has been teaching photography for over thirty years in the USA and abroad.

In 2011, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego exhibited large-scale photographs from “Emperor’s River”, a new multi-year project he has been conducting in China.
