A unique and fascinating combination of portrait and architectural photography
For its 100th anniversary the construction company Holcim has commissioned a unique artistic memento. Star photographer Marco Grob along with the artistic duo of hiepler, brunier, were invited to photograph the company's workers and its workplaces. The result is a stunning homage to 80,000 employees in 70 countries.
With his sensitive yet direct portraits, Marco Grob captures the face of the company. His images provide an engaging contrast to the abstract beauty of hiepler, brunier,'s architectural studies of Holcim's workplaces.
The resulting series of black-and-white photography has great resonance and pays fitting tribute to the New Objective tradition of August Sander and Albert Renger-Patzsch.
