Jerome Abramovitch // Mannequin Amputees

For the past 14 years, he has evolved from an underground artist shooting personal & documentary work to a commercial photographer taking on the worlds of entertainment, sports, fashion and advertising.

Jerome’s inherent nature to seek, explore and be that which is different has gained him the kind of recognition and marketable appeal that can only be attained by such an unconventional and driven individual. The stark honesty of his photographs is testament to who he is as an artist, the eccentric characters that surround him and the intimate bonds they share.

His work and his own image are well recognized in Europe, Japan, not to mention the Americas… at least in the right circles. Jerome moves seamlessly between object, subject, voyeur, and documenter.

Jerome’s extreme creativity has been immortalized twice in the Guinness World Book of Records; he has been featured in media worldwide such as Ripley’s Believe it or Not, the Learning Channel, the Ricki Lake Show, Pro-Sieben in Germany, Medical Incredible in Australia, on top of countless magazines and internet sites. He is also notoriously known as the cover model for the Modcon Books (North American & Japanese editions) documenting the Modern Primitive 2.0 movement of the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Exhibitions include the Quebec City Museum of Civilization and a solo exhibit at Montreal’s legendary underground Foufounes Électriques.

Jerome is currently working on new pieces for his Mannequin Series, as well as traveling the world to shoot his eccentric collection of friends.
