"Life, on Intergen" is a new film showing the people behind the energy company Intergen. Banks Film | Photo have worked with Intergen for ten years covering their power projects in the UK, Netherlands and Mexico.
Since its founding in 1995, InterGen has had a successful track record of developing, constructing, and operating power projects around the world. Intergen has always strived to be a leading energy company generating safe, reliable and sustainable power in the communities in which we operate.
The film and images were created to reflect Intergen’s core values of safety, integrity, teamwork, entrepreneurship and community.
I wanted to show the people behind the company, and Intergen as a global team of experts in all levels, aligned and motivated by a common goal to forward the long-term value of the company.
It was also important to show Intergen’s commitment to contributing to the quality of life in the communities where they operate, and to respect the people and cultures of the communities.

2017 marks a significant year for Magnum as they celebrate 70 years since four pioneering photographers toasted the conception of an independent photo agency. LensCulture and legendary photography agency Magnum Photos are joining forces to mark this landmark anniversary with a series of international events, projects and partnerships, with an emphasis on the agency's digital presence and the photography community at large.
Magnum has served as an important collective of the visionary photographers who captured (and continue to capture) world-famous, iconic images that define and shape our rapidly-changing lives. It is often said that if you picture an iconic image, but can't think who took it or where it can be found, it probably came from Magnum.
