Stephen Wilkes photographs the new brand campaign for Northrop Grumman. The global company specializes in aerospace and defense technology. Wilkes collaborated with McGarry Bowen’s Art Director Jules Evenson and Art Buyers Jamie Appelbaum and Ali Asplund to give the photographs a documentary-style look and feel. The images are meant to convey Northrop Grumman as responsible people doing important work and how performance is more than just speed or strength to them. Wilkes used scale and unexpected camera angles to create drama and interest. The black and white coloration elevates the subjects and creates a visual unity across all sectors of the company.
