Large format. Publisher's description: Eleven years ago Leipzig photographer Torsten Hattenkerl was given an unusual commission, to create a running document about the international mineral processing company Allmineral and their many global locations. The request was not only to record the plants and workers but to explore the towns and communities that supported the plants. From Africa to Europe to Asia the hardware remained the same but the landscape, people and flavor change drastically. The earth turned bright rust, landscapes turned urban or rural and factory offices were full of color or almost empty. Suprisingly the final product, sort of a 21st century annual report, is a deeply engaging portrait of a global corporation and the cultures it works within. The oversized volume begins in black and white but quickly moves on to color where the tempo of the book really is set. Media theorist David Sittler contributes an engaging essay to top off an excellent publication.
