Already over 2 weeks ago, I posted Part 1 about my friend Hermin Abramovitch. Now here comes part 2 (and in due time, a Part 3 will follow).

I have known Hermin Abramovitch for something like 20 years or more.
We had both been on a photography site called Trek Lens. When Hermin got canned from there I asked him what happened. Apparently, he had a fight with the owner of the site. He recommended I follow him onto DeviantArt, a site much better suited for posting about my artwork.

He posts some poignant and sometimes humorous descriptions with his photos, and I am copying those under the respective photographs.

Note: check this post out on Busy - you can view the images much larger!



"The pigs did not actually work, but directed and supervised the others. With their superior knowledge it was natural that they should assume the leadership". George Orwell, Animal Farm
Lao Tzu who lived in the 6th century B.C, was the founder of the Chinese philosophical ‘School of the Tao’ or ‘Taoism’. He was known to be a contemporary of the great and the most revered Chinese teacher and philosopher ‘Confucius’, but some legends believe that they both were same person. The origin and life of Lao Tzu is extremely ambiguous and even after centuries of research very little is known about his life. Nevertheless, his teachings have been handed down through centuries and today his followers are manifold.
Lao Tzu worked as a ‘shi’ or historian at the royal court. After getting fed up with the fake and emptiness of life in the royal entourage he decide to live everything behind and embarked on a voyage to the west. He traveled to the Xiangu pass to enter the state of Qin. The guardian of the pass Yinxi insisted that the philosopher should write a book before living. He did so, writing the ‘Daodejing’, which is the combination of ‘Dao’, which means, ‘way’ and ‘de’ ‘its virtue’. It is a philosophical account and can be literally translated as ‘Classic of the Way of Power’. Following the completion of the book, the wise old man left Xiangu pass, and nothing was known about his whereabouts, thereafter.
Lao Tzu is a whistle-blower. He is someone who asked himself what he was really doing. He turned himself away from the world and as an outsider he suddenly saw that all his fellow men are occupied by their daydreams. Caught up in their own head-trips they follow leaders that don’t know better than they themselves do, stuck silly traditions and habits, talking about nothing, ruled by fear, not knowing who they are, anxious about everything and nothing. They are slaughtering each other, attached to their possessions, locked up in their houses, villages, cities, states; involved in labor and day-to-day routines, and last but not least, they accept all this. Lao Tzu incites us to free ourselves from these chains, to stop the nonsense that weary ourselves. He dare us not to trust flattery from others anymore, not to follow the leaders anymore and to just enjoy life.



The Humboldt squid is very aggressive and will even attack sharks in the water.
The only predators that giant squid have are sperm whales.
The Colossal Squid is the largest invertebrate in the world. The smallest is the sepiolid squid. It is less than one inch long and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce.

A foreplay method in which a woman's partner rubs her magic bean 3 times and a little genie pops out to grant her every wish.
It is where you haven't wanked for so long that all the excess cum builds up. Then when u have sex you are able to cum 3 times before u finally admit defeat and go limp.



The Secret Behind The Most Famous Magic Trick Revealed
To do this trick, you will need a rabbit, a table covered with a sheet, a piece of hard material and high hat.
Take the piece of black material and connect all 4 parts, loosely.
Then put the rabbit in a makeshift sack in which you would attach the hook under the table that will be in front of you during a performance.
Sheet should be set so as it can not to be seen with the bag rabbit.
At the beginning of your performance, show the hat to the audience in order to prove that there is nothing in it.
Next, put the hat on the table, with its opening on the surface of the table.
Now comes the most important part of the trick. With the help of simple hand movements, lift the hat quickly and insert the bag into it.
To drag the attention of the audience, get moving around the table in order to show that not doing anything suspicious and then go back, take your hat in your hands and show them the rabbit.



Images of sorrow, pictures of delight
Things that go to make up a life
Endless days of summer longer nights of gloom
Waiting for the morning light
Scenes of unimportance like photos in a frame
Things that go to make up a life
Help us someone, let us out of here
Living here so long undisturbed
Dreaming of the time we were free
So many years ago
Before the time when we first heard
Welcome to the Home by the Sea



We stayed in contact from time to time, and just recently, I went again to DeviantArt to see what he was up to.
Already back in April 2013, frustrated with peeps ripping off his photos, he posted this Journal Entry saying sarcastically "Everything in my account is for free" - and here is the kicker: there were actually peeps so dense they took it seriously and profusely thanked him (you can read some of the comments in the link I provided).

He is a very talented, prolific and inventive photographer - and I only scratch the surface with some of the work I present here. To see his work, go to DeviantArt - AHERMIN.

Currently working in Israel as a Quality Assurance Manager at Solcon Industries LTD. - previously as Regulatory Affairs Manager at Harmonic and at GE Healthcare (Six Sigma Black Belt). He studied at the University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, Romania. He speaks English, Hebrew, French, Romanian and Russian.

You can also see some work and read about him on the TUTTART PITTURA blog site

All photos are © Hermin Abramovitch - and you may inquire about it via e-mail - in spite of what his DeviantArt Journal entry says, it would be the decent thing to do!

Hi Otto, thank you for this awesome post, I have never heard about Hermin but reading about him, his works, his Art left a great impact in my heart. It is good time currently with technology and development but we see the other side of it when the works of one person can be stolen so easily and at the end you have to proof that you are not a donkey. I can imagine how Hermin felt when from frustration he wrote: ...All my works are for free...

You are sharing such beautiful Personality with others and this is how good friends and Admirers should behave. Thank you again for this beautiful post!

Thank you, I will be posting more of his work in future.

Such interesting pieces he has made. The idea of ownership and such is constantly changing as we ever move into digital life. I think the next 10 years will seem like 1000's of years away from the previous 10. The world is changing so quickly now, 2030 is approaching.

I should live that long, lol
