Biography by AllMovie

Cinematographer Edward Lachman has been filming Hollywood and independent features since the mid '80s. Following education at Ohio University, Athens, he worked as an assistant to such noted lighting directors as Robby Müller, Sven Nykvist and Vittorio Storaro. Over the years Lachman would photograph such films as Less than Zero (1987), The Virgin Suicides (1999) and Erin Brokovich (2000), though it was his work on 2002's Far from Heaven that would find Lachman nominated for his first Academy Award. More quality work was quick to follow with the independent 2004 drama Stryker, and shortly after lensing Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion in 2006, Lachman would re-team with Far from Heaven director Haynes for the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There.
