This animated GIF was created from a 1951 gelatin silver print by Wolfgang Georg Sievers at Ford Motor Company factory in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Sievers, a Berlin-born Australian photographer who shot primarily in black and white, specialized in themes of industry, architecture, construction, and mining. His photographs were often overtly theatrical, and he commonly photographed industrial machinery at night, isolating details with artificial light and posing workers for heightened effect. The animation further exaggerates the high contrast aesthetic of the photo by playing with exposure and brightness, with welding sparks illuminating the space.
