Michael Ackerman Workshop 8.-9. October 2016
During this weekend Michael Ackerman will share with you his instinctive and visionary 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 photography: 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.
Michael Ackerman has a radical approach and wants you to be radically honest with yourself. He makes you focus on meaning and expression, rather than form and technique. It is about feeling free to search, experiment, break borders, make mistakes, take emotional risks, all towards the goal of getting closer to ourselves.
