Kilian Kessler: Captures employees for RIBAG

Considering the fact that RIBAG is a firm that sells innovative lighting concepts, it is hard to stop oneself from imagining how light dawns on Kilian Kessler while working on the realization of their employee portraits.

In contrast to common portrait techniques, he uses a simple technique, or rather a very reduced form. What he does is thinking one step ahead.

The company works with light. Thus, he decides to work with black and white pictures in front of a dark background. He uses only one light source which highlights the person’s face and the upper half of the torso in the dark. The resulting effect inevitably provides relevance, believability and depth.

Kilian Kessler wonderfully relates each person’s importance for the company’s success and the connection to the company’s products.
