Ed Lachman is one of the most notorious DOPs of our generation. With a career that spans over four decades, Lachman’s unique vision and approach to storytelling is clear throughout his work.
Son of Edward Lachman, a movie theatre distributor and owner, Ed Lachman was born in New Jersey. He graduated with a degree from Harvard University and from the University of Tours, in France. He later on took a BFA in painting at the Ohio University.
In the 70’s, Lachman had the opportunity to start his career in the New German Cinema and he has since then worked on a wide range of documentaries, features and even music videos.
Lachman has worked with directors like Steven Soderbergh on The Limey (1999) and the critically-acclaimed Erin Brockovich (2000); Todd Haynes on Far From Heaven (2002) and I'm Not There (2007); Sofia Coppola's cult classic The Virgin Suicides (1999); Wim Wenders’ Lightning Over Water, and has even co-directed with Larry Clark the controversial Ken Park (2002).
In 2015, Lachman works once again with Todd Haynes in the period drama Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, which got Lachman his second Oscar nomination and also a nomination for a BAFTA film award for Best Cinematography.
Ed Lachman is a strong defender of maintaining film as an alternative tool of picture capture and in 2017 he was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award given by the American Society of Cinematographers.
