Alongside his work as a successful filmmaker for TV advertisements, Achim Lippoth has for many years pursued a personal photographic project depicting scenes of childhood.
Describing his work as “staged photojournalism”, he allows the children in his images to become the main characters, the heroes. They appear as dance students, as monks, as members of a perfectly dressed carnival group, and present themselves in proud, intense poses. His studio photography is carefully staged and the children seem to become the conscious embodiment of their characters, meeting the viewer eye to eye.
Lippoth’s perspective draws us into a child-like world in which the props, the poses, and the costumes are presented and interpreted as comprising a natural unit. The children are captured in a gentle, harmonious light, without having to squint or dodge the glare of the camera´s flash.
Lippoth founded the magazine “Kid’s Wear” in 1995. The publication, which he has produced ever since, has been recognised by the Art Directors Club New York, the Art Directors Club Germany, and the Lead Awards among others.
