Mortimer Abramowitz Gallery of Photomicrography

Mortimer Abramowitz, a renowned microscopist and photomicrographer, received the New York Microscopical Society (NYMS) Ernst Abbe Memorial Award in 2002. Prior to becoming a consultant with Olympus America, microscopy was a hobby for Mr. Abramowitz. For many years, he held various positions in the New York City public schools as a teacher, assistant principal, principal and acting superintendent. Between 1968 and 1982, he served as the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction and then Superintendent in Great Neck, New York.

Mort, as we was affectionately known by his friends, was simultaneously an active member of the New York Microscopical Society, becoming a Fellow in 1970. Microscopy eventually became his career when he joined Olympus in 1982. During his 25 years with Olympus, Mort penned numerous articles and books on microscopy and received several awards, both for his contributions to the field and for his stunning photomicrographs, some of which are shown below. Mort passed away in 2007 at age 90, but his images and books continue to teach thousands of aspiring microscopists across the globe.
