MICHAEL ACKERMANPHOTOGRAPHERAMERICAN / LIVES IN BERLIN

MICHAEL ACKERMAN HAS MADE HIS MARK BY BRINGING A NEW, RADICAL AND UNIQUE APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY. HIS METHOD DOESN’T FOLLOW TRADITION, IT IS NOT A SIMPLE CHRONICLE OF EVENTS. THE PACE OF HIS PHOTOGRAPHY IS CLOSER TO CINEMATOGRAPHY THAN TRADITIONAL DOCUMENTARY: IMAGES USED IN SEQUENCES, DIFFERENT FORMATS, PICTURES THAT APPEAR «WRONG», IMAGES USED AS LINKS BETWEEN OTHER IMAGES;ALL USED TO COMPOSE AN ESSAY THAT DOES NOT VALUE WHERE OR WHEN THE PICTURES WERE MADE BUT RATHER ATTEMPTS TO CAPTURE A DEEPER EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL TRUTH OF THE SUBJECT.
