About

Born in Düsseldorf in 1968, Philipp Rathmer is a photographer in the international fashion, lifestyle and advertising industries. He worked in New York from 1993 to 1994, and has worked from Hamburg since 1995.
 

As well as advertising and editorials he has photographed celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Christoph Waltz, Juliette Lewis, Jogi Löw, Luciano Pavarotti, Daniel Brühl, Vanessa Mae, Jay-Z, Michael Schumacher and many others. His charity work has included involvement in aid projects for the Hear the World Foundation. 

Although highly diverse, his work retains a style all of its own. Philipp Rathmer frequently uses light in completely new ways. He achieves proximity to the people he portrays, accentuating naturalness and the singularity of each character.
