Michael Ackerman. An American by birth, Michael Ackerman was born in Tel Aviv and moved to New York in 1984. After studying he began to photograph in the city’s streets, nightclubs and on its waterfronts. Between 1993 and 1997 he made several trips to Benares, India. The photographs from that project were published as End Time City by Robert Delpire, the legendary Paris based publisher.
