He mainly photographs children with an innocent depiction of childhood. He represents "diverse facets of childlife: its spontaneity, camaraderie, playfulness, and of course, mischief”. Lippoth focuses on the complexities and contradictions of modern childhood. By using child models to stage scenes from everyday life, he casts normal activities with a complex sub-text, questioning the viewer’s innocence and complicity.

Edelman’s Gallery has described Lippoth’s work as “drawing heavily from art and photographic history, [he] creates images which have a haunting beauty that is both humorous and poignant, as children take center stage within his elaborate sets. The resulting imagets are arresting, using seductive colors to dramatize events, memories and emotions from our collective past”.
