The Archer takes you on a mystifying journey of one man's travels, permitting you to look into his world and his way of the bow. The Archer has no home to call his own as he travels the world alone. He takes one small suitcase and a long sleeve in which he carries his most prized possession. A once successful architect, the Archer is taken to the brink of ruin only to rise again, committing himself to a new way of life, as he learns about China and the mystical mountains of Wudang, where his past and present meet. Haunting dreams reveal secrets from sixth-century China. Lilian, his lost love, assists him in finding the missing pieces of a past life. Drawn to live by the Tao Te Ching and the flowing movements of Taijiquan he embraces the simplicity of life. He has no desire for material things and needs nothing other than what God puts before him. A disciplined teacher and guide, he changes the souls of children along his way and allows a brief glimpse into the window of his soul. With a click of the mouse, I came to find Armin Hirmer, the Archer, within the confines of my modern silver machine. Certainly, it was not by chance, but a universal vibration radiating and my ability as an intuitive to capture what was revealed to my eyes. His photography mesmerized me, revealing a million oceans rippling the spirit within him.
