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.

STÉPHANE CHARPENTIER
PHOTOGRAPHER, TEMPS ZERO CURATOR
FRENCH / LIVES IN ATHENS

STÉPHANE CHARPENTIER ENGAGES AN INTROSPECTIVE PHOTOGRAPHIC LANGUAGE TO BUILD LONG-TERM ANALOG SERIES. HIS IMAGES AIM TO HEIGHTEN EMOTION IN ORDER TO STIMULATE THE SPECTATORS’ RECEPTIVITY AND REACTIONS TO MOMENTS SUSPENDED BETWEEN AN ENDLESS VISION OF HUMANITY’S STRUGGLES AND HOPES.
HE ALSO CREATES SHORT ARTISTIC FILMS, INSTALLATIONS AND SOME MUSIC VIDEOS. HE COLLABORATES WITH VARIOUS MUSICIANS, TOOK PART TO THE CREATION OF OISEAUX-TEMPÊTE BAND, AND FOR 5 YEARS HE HAS CURATED AND PROMOTED THE TEMPS ZERO COLLECTIVE PROJECTIONS & LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCES AROUND EUROPE.
