Publisher's Description

In Pirelli Work, taken at the famous tire manufacturer's plant, UK photographer Chris Killip (born 1946) documents the factory setting and the workers. One of the novelties of this work is in the lighting: the photographer mimicked fashion techniques, illuminating his subjects with three or four lights triggered by remote control, plus a light held on a pole away from the camera. 'The workplace had become, in a real sense for me, a theater,' he has said, 'I embraced the look of these new photographs with their relation to fashion, film noir, and even Soviet Realism. For me this 'look' seemed a more telling way to record and document this enforced ritual.'

This clothbound monograph is the second edition of Pirelli Work, which was first published in 2006.
