MICHAEL ACKERMAN
PHOTOGRAPHER
AMERICAN / 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.

FRENCH / LIVES IN ATHENS

HE HAS BEEN PART OF SEVERAL PHOTOGRAPHIC CURATORIAL PROJECTS INCLUDING THE GOMMA GRANT 2016 & 2017. HE IS CURATING, PROMOTING AND EDITING THE TEMPS ZERO PROJECTS SINCE 2013.

THE CORE OF THIS EXPERIENCE IS TO RELEASE EACH PARTICIPANT’S OWN VISION AND SUBJECTIVITY. EACH ONE WILL RECEIVE AN INSIGHT ON HOW TO CONNECT WITH THE INNER ARTISTIC IMPULSE AND HOW TO BETTER ENGAGE WITH THEIR OWN PERSONAL PROJECTS WHILE DEVELOPING COLLABORATIVE PRESENTATIONS ALONGSIDE THE SOUND ARTISTS OF THE WORKSHOP.
