Michael Ackerman – Photographer

Michael Ackerman is another amazing photographer I found through the 500 photographers project by Pieter Wisse.

American photographer Michael Ackerman, 1967, Israel, works and lives in Berlin. Recently his third book Half Life came out. It contains images that focus on Poland and Berlin.

Michael shows us his view of the world, made up of feelings as love, anxiety and obsessions. His photography is easily recognized due to his very dark and gritty images. His photography is a reflection of his personal malaise, his doubts and anguish.

This last one reminds me a lot of the German Expressionism in film in the 1920’s. And if we’re talking about movies, it also looks like a bit like the house in Hitchcock’s Psycho:
