Olaf Wipperfürth is a photographer and director from Düsseldorf, Germany. He currently lives and works between China, Paris and New York.

After his doctorate and supplementary studies at the Düsseldorf Art Academie, Olaf exclusively dedicated his life and passion to photography and film, projecting his theoretical and conceptual knowledge into his artistic universe. His art has been shown in various exhibitions and featured in numerous book publications, and explores mainly the themes of absence, trace and ephemeral space.

One of his first assignments in fashion was a close collaboration with designer Dries van Noten for whom he photographed countless images. His fashion, beauty and portrait photography has since been published in leading magazines and in major brand advertisements.

Deeply influenced by the imagery of film, contemporary dance and 80s German sub-culture, he has also generated a captivating body of work in beauty, portrait and fashion photography. His exquisite lighting, combined with a rare talent for capturing movement and emotion, makes his playful cinematic photography unique and internationally renowned.
