Text: Christian Caujolle

The first publication of End Time Citylisted Michael Ackerman as a major figure in photography. Twenty years later, this new edition, reimagined by the artist, presents a selection of his iconic photographs, enriched with many completely new images, taken during his recent trips to Benares, in 2018 and 2020. This new visual corpus gives to see a greater presence of animals in Ackerman’s universe. The latter takes us on a crazy stroll through the narrow streets of Benares, the most sacred city in Hinduism, which welcomes pilgrims who have come to die here to erase their sins and put an end to the cycle of rebirth. Saturated with dust, populated by ghostly presences with intense gazes, Ackerman’s photographs render a world bordering on daydreaming.
