Peter Keetman (1916-2005) spent a week in 1953 at the Volkswagen Factory, Wolfsburg in Germany (1953) and produced a documentary study of the plant that goes logically through the manufacturing process.[1] The project was commercial and as such was excluded from early photohistorical studies but the clarity in the way the work was completed transcends the original purpose of the photographs.

Footnotes 
  
  1. Λ Peter Keetman, 1993, Volkswagen: A Week at the Factory, (Chronicle Books)
    In 1953, photographer Peter Keetman spent a week at a Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, emerging with a collection of remarkable images that, although rejected by the Volkswagen publicists, transform the parts of the popular car into works of abstract art gleaming stacks of hoods and fenders trace sinuous lines reminiscent of Edward Weston's seashells; bolts of cable look like exotic plants; sheet metal takes on a life of its own. Arranged in the order of the car's manufacturing process, accompanied by three essays on photography and Volkswagen production, Volkswagen: A Week at the Factory is a landmark in the history of industrial photography and a timeless look at a contemporary icon.
