A series of images relating to and surrounding the sale of MG Rover by BMW and the subsequent changes at the then largest UK motor manufacturer. It had been hoped to include an interview and portrait of John Towers, CBE of the Phoenix Consortium but he declined. My clients brief was that I should shoot black and white, use strong lighting and get all models to do something with their hands.

Max Kellner, BMW (UK)
A man who gave me time and some. His office wasn't the easiest or most interesting room to work in but I was able to set up a quite involved lighting whilst at the same time back-lighting from the windows.
