NE DAY IN THE EARLY 1960s, junior photo-agent Ben Chapnick placed a call to a contact at American Cyanamid (now BASF). The chemical company needed shots of their foreign production facilities, and Black Star already had an international team in place.
  GETTING SUCH A PHOTOGRAPH would cost Cyanamid both time and money. Black Star's offer proved economically unbeatable, but could a 35mm camera capture the quality and detail needed?

CHAPNICK NEVER DOUBTED IT. He grabbed some copies of the large-format magazine Fortune and went to Cyanamid's offices. Soon, he was showing off the magazine's two page center spread - a single Black Star photo - proof that 35mm was more than adequate, it was beautiful.

WHAT STARTED AS A SERVICE for a handful of industrial clients has now grown to include hundreds of Fortune 500 companies who need custom corporate photography.
