Excerpt of a photo project done for the Cologne plant of INEOS Group, a multinational chemicals company. The project consisted of updating the company’s image library by approx. 700 new high resolution photographs. The images will be used over the next few years for multiple applications ranging from external and internal publications, public relations, corporate communications, as well as decorating meeting facilities and for exhibition displays. An emphasis of the project was to visually highlight the slogan of the plant “Chemie von Menschen” by showing their staff in a collaborative way. The plant employs 2,000 highly skilled specialists from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. The photos were shot in a classic reportage style using available light and a hand-held camera only to not interfere with the work processes and to achieve a most realistic look of the work environments.
