Photographer #199: Michael Ackerman

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. The following images come from the story Half Life, his Portrait portfolio and the story Smoke.

Michaels photos are the best I have seen the last years. 100% pure.
