Exhibit to be Held by Dr. Alan Sloyer Master Photographer

Photographer Alan Sloyer to Exhibit at Sid Jacobson JCC Art Gallery – Opening reception will take place on Sunday, December 16 from 1-3 p.m.

Photographer Dr. Alan Sloyer, will show his “Global Entry: No Passport Required” photography exhibit at Sid Jacobson JCC’s art gallery from December 14 through April 29.  Dr. Sloyer will be donating all proceeds made from the sale of his photography to the Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center’s (NMCWC) “We’ve Got Your Back” after-school program. Dr. Sloyer’s work is displayed in the East Hills Calendar each year.

A Roslyn native and New-York based photographer, Sloyer specializes in travel, landscape and street photography, and was raised to believe that “travel is the best education.” Practicing this philosophy, he has traveled around the world, photographing his adventures in more than 70 countries on six continents, over the past four decades. Sloyer’s photos have appeared in The New York Times, New England Journal of Medicine, Chronos, Annals of Internal Medicine and Shutterbug magazine.  His photo, A Winter’s Morning, was selected by Nikon for its holiday card for North and South America.

Sloyer will be donating 100 percent of the sales of his photography from the art gallery to the “We’ve Got Your Back” after-school program, designed for children ages 5-12 whose parent or sibling has a cancer diagnosis. “Throughout the years I have always found SJJCC to be a nourishing place supporting all people and also so many good causes,” says Sloyer. “As a physician, I have often noticed that the needs of the family members of cancer victims are often overlooked while the patient is receiving treatment. So, when I found out about the ‘We’ve Got Your Back’ program I thought it was a very worthy cause that deserved my support.”

The program gives children the opportunity to share and learn life skills alongside peers who are also facing similar circumstances. The NMCWC’s professionally-trained staff assists with supervised homework time, therapeutic playtime, and more. The program helps children acquire tools on how to cope with their family member’s cancer diagnosis.

An opening reception for the exhibit will take place on Sunday, December 16 from 1-3 p.m. in the lobby of Sid Jacobson JCC with light refreshments being served.
