Cinematographer Dietrich Lohmann has played an important part in developing and defining the look of New German Cinema. Over his distinguished career, he worked with some of his country's finest directors. Born in Berlin, Lohmann studied at the Berlin Film School under such great filmmakers as Alexander Kluge and Werner Herzog. Upon graduating in 1969, Lohmann teamed up with young director Ranier Werner Fassbinder. His first three collaborations with Fassbinder were filmed with a minimalist style in black and white; their third effort won Lohmann the Film Prize of West Germany. Lohmann would continue working with Fassbinder on nine films during a four year period. Lohmann won an ASC Award and an Emmy nomination for filming the European sequences of the American mini-series War and Remembrance in 1986. The success of that project inspired Lohmann to move to L.A. and work with international and American directors. His notable efforts from the '90s include Mimi Leder's directorial debut, The Peacemaker (1997). It was while filming Leder's sophomore feature Deep Impact that he died of leukemia at age 54. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
