According to Denis Kambouchner's introduction, Half Life is a haunted book. It is certainly disturbing; in Michael Ackerman's world, something is disintegrating. The landscapes are harsh and unwelcoming, but it is the anguish of individuals that stirs us most deeply—their expressions of distress and confusion, their unfinished gestures, the sense of damage. These are people who appear to live in the ruins of a drama. It is as if their whole bodies were given over to a scream.
Michael Ackerman is a member of the prestigious Agence VU' Galerie, has been exhibited worldwide, and has won several international awards. He lives in Berlin, Germany.
