His own work has been the subject of numerous comments and articles including a profile in Shutterbug. Critic Karen Chambers said of his work,"The abstract qualities of his photographs...make him more of an impressionist than a realist". William Zimmer,contributing critic for the New York Times noted that Ordover work owes a debt to impressionist painting."By presenting universal elements in his work,Ordover is communicating the overwhelming emotion experience that was his...the peak experiences are the kind that change one's life, and Abe Ordover captures them."
