Jeremy Ackman

Black and white portrait of photographer Jeremy Ackman

I see photography as documenting the life around me. I started photographing my daily commute to work on the subway. From there to documenting my family, as a stay-at-home father I’ve been focusing on my daughter growing up and the world around us. By concentrating on my surrounding environments there is a bigger influence on ours lives that we don’t necessarily sense, but infect the way we think and feel about the world. I combined them because the two worlds are not separate. By us living here our surrounding shapes us as we shape it.”
