Wolfram Schroll photographs the distribution center for arvato BERTELSMANN – and keeps on moving...

Wolfram Schroll, is specialized in industrial topics and was commissioned to photograph the distribution center of Arvato in Halle / Queis. For Telekom, Arvator manages the entire logistics services.

Wolfram tells us: 'On a location check, the complex work processes were shown and explained to me, and I selected the first motifs. During the two-day shoot, all my wishes came true. In such a process with more than 10000 packages per day, you can't stop production. Everything is in motion, autonomous vehicles traverse the production facility; there is a constant flow of boxes from one side of the hall to the other. So I was able to realize my photographic ideas with a blend of multiple exposures and post production. All in all, it was a job that kept us moving quite a lot. For the team too; we did a lot of walking.''

Specialty chemicals company LANXESS relies on production, development and research – photographed by Wolfram Schroll

The High Performance Materials business unit (HPM) of chemicals company LANXESS commissioned industry photographer WOLFRAM SCHROLL to shoot photos in the areas of production, development and research for the company's own photo pool. Wolfram Schroll on the project: "I've always been fascinated by chemistry and used to build small solid rockets when I was about twelve – thank goodness they didn't fly very far."  LANXESS, of course, is about completely different products, for example plastics for the emerging electro-mobility sector.

The challenge during the shoot for LANXESS was finding and developing motifs in the giant complex of production facilities and labs. "After a detailed location check, we photographed for one week at two different sites." says Wolfram Schroll. The LANXESS AG, headquartered in Cologne, is a specialty chemicals company which was founded in 2004 after outsourcing the chemicals division and parts of the polymers division at Bayer AG. The company reached a stock market value of approximately 7.5 billion US dollars in mid 2018. We have Wolfram Schroll's photos here for you on GoSee.

Dragon 900 fire hose, high-tech scales, and hard-working night shifters from the logistics firm Mönig – new corporate photographs by industry photographer Wolfram Schroll

“I didn't know the Dragon 900 before. It is a highly durable hose used by firefighters around the world. And, as the name says, it can take on temperatures of up to 900 degrees and is produced by ESCHBACH. You'd think, just one hose, but production is very complex. The shoot took place over the course of two days at the factory,” industrial photographer Wolfram SCHROLL tells GoSee. Jakob Eschbach GmbH is a family-owned & operated company, and since its foundation in 1956, has become one of the world's leading manufacturers of fire hoses.

Just as elaborate: the high-tech scales from WIPOTEC, which are used in the pharma and food industries. My production for Bilderpool took three days," says the photographer.

"And then the hard-working night-shift from the haulage company Mönig, without which 24/7 production would not be possible in many places. To convey the extent of constant availability, I photographed mainly in the dark; which was exciting." It all began back in 1957, transporting milk and wood clippings. In the morning, milk cans were driven to the dairy and wood clippings to the chipboard plant in the afternoon. Wolfram once again captured the work processes.
