Biography

Achim Lippoth (born 1968 in Ilshofen, West Germany) is a German photographer and film director best known for using child models to stage scenes from everyday life.

Biography

Lippoth was born in Ilshofen, Germany in 1968 and is currently living in Cologne. In 1985-86, he studied at Byrom College Manchester in Great Britain. In 1986-92, he studied art at University of Cologne. In 1992, he became a freelance photographer based in Germany. In 1995, he established kid’s wear Magazine. He has been a film director with the commercial film production company Markenfilm in Germany since 1998.

Commercial Work

He mainly photographs children with an innocent depiction of childhood. He represents "diverse facets of childlife: its spontaneity, camaraderie, playfulness, and of course, mischief”. Lippoth focuses on the complexities and contradictions of modern childhood. By using child models to stage scenes from everyday life, he casts normal activities with a complex sub-text, questioning the viewer’s innocence and complicity.

Edelman’s Gallery has described Lippoth’s work as “drawing heavily from art and photographic history, [he] creates images which have a haunting beauty that is both humorous and poignant, as children take center stage within his elaborate sets. The resulting imagets are arresting, using seductive colors to dramatize events, memories and emotions from our collective past”.

Lippoth’s work has been published in Blackbook, New York Times Magazine, Details, Stern, Vogue Italia and Vogue Nippon.

He has also worked for advertising agencies including Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, DDB Worldwide, Grey Worldwide, Jung von Matt, Leo Burnett Worldwide, Lowe Worldwide, Ogilvy & Mather, and others. Among his customers are such names as Audi, AOL, Lego, Mcdonald’s, Lexus and Lufthansa.
