In spring 2020, industrial photographer Wolfram Schroll was commissioned to photograph the Annual Report for Fraunhofer IEM in Paderborn. Fraunhofer IEM researches in the areas of mechatronics, system engineering, AR/VR solutions and digital transformations.
“Besides photographs from the labs, portraits of the department managers and directors of the institute were also needed for the elaborately designed 2019 year book. Following the location check, photos were shot over the course of three days, some with more than 20 protagonists in front of the camera. By the way, this was one of my last jobs before the Corona crisis – no masks, all up close, and all in the past.” Wolfram tells GoSee.
