ABOUT THE OSEROFF MEMORIAL PURCHASE PRIZE

The Oseroff Purchase Prize will be awarded each year to one regionally-significant photographer whose artwork is identified as being of exceptionally quality. The Oseroff Memorial Purchase Prize will be in the amount of $1,000. The selected work becomes part of the permanent collection of Roswell Park Cancer Institute and is prominently displayed in a public area of the hospital alongside the work of many of this region’s most notable artists. The prizes are designed to enhance the environment for all members of the Roswell Community.

The Oseroff Memorial Purchase Prize is named in memory of Dr. Allan R. Oseroff, Chief of Dermatology at Roswell from 1989 until his death in 2008. Dr. Oseroff, a world-renowned expert in photodynamic therapy, had a life-long interest in photography and the visual arts. He was an empathetic physician who blended true caring with the latest scientific advances to become greatly loved by his patients and fellow staff.

The prize is supported by an endowment from grateful patients and friends with a major contribution from his wife, Dr. Stephanie Pincus, and children Ben, Tamara and Matt.
