KID’S WEAR MAGAZINE STORYTELLING

BOOK SIGNING and PHOTO EXHIBITION BY ACHIM LIPPOTH

Lyceum

Through a special exibition the Cologne-based artist Achim Lippoth examines the clichés about children, as well as the expectations of their roles. The theme of cildhood is the topic also of his most recent works that will be presented in the monograph "Geschichten über das Kindsein / Storytelling" on the occasion of Pitti Bimbo.

Lippoth discovered photography on his own while studying art nearly twenty-five years ago. From that point onward he’s been interested in the topics of children, reflections upon being a child, and childhood in the twentieth century. “From the start I had success with kids, and so I just kept going. I found my niche.” In 1995 Lippoth founded the cult magazine, kid’s wear, and is an in-demand fashion and advertising photographer as well as a director.
