Physician, psychiatrist, musician/composer, author, world traveller, seasoned/award winning photographer, international medical lecturer, charity worker, very very cynical, sardonic,too wry, usually pessimistic and a great lover of Indian food, Guinness and the Beatles. After 15 years on the analysts couch & now headed for his second couch he is still nonplussed about this absurd,preposterous,cockamamie life we all lead. Home base is in the East Village of Manhattan, when he is stateside.
Realizing life is short & getting shorter, wanting more than "just being a doctor" and living in a fish bowl, Dr. Losack semi-retired from his medical practice at the ripe old age of forty to pursue his true passions: Circling the globe many times east and westward,living a good part of the year in the third world, and doing things his colleagues say they 'will do' but never do. He is still a practicing psychiatrist and has done a great deal of work with the homeless, disenfranchised and those behind bars in US prisons.
Dr Losack now practices Tele-psychiatry/tele-medicine from his home treating an entire rural community in the midwest.
These Americans some of the poorest cannot get appointments to see psychiatrists. Psychiatrists are in great demand in the nation and few want to travel to rural America where the need is so great. He has developed this rural practice via the wonders of modern technology making it very possible to diagnose and treat the mentally ill from afar.
He considers himself lucky to have travelled in over 50 nations but especially honored & humbled to have spent the last 20 years off and on in India, a nation he calls the most photogenic in the world, thousands of years old,& a place he calls his second home and where his real heart lays.
He has survived the Tsunami of 2004, typhoons in Bangladesh, earthquakes in India, civil war in Sri Lanka, election chaos in the Dominican Republic, 9/11/2001 downtown NYC ( where he lives and shot),& has faced the wrath and punishment from police in Tunisia to the Dominican Republic while shooting in so called 'sensitive areas'. He also has lived many years in the Dominican Republic, where he studied medicine and which he has photographed extensively.
His passion: photojournalism, often shooting the dark side of humanity.
He has won several international awards for his photographic work.
Dr. Losacks photos were recently published in Popular Photography, American Photo, National Geographic, and many other magazines, web sites and other venues too many to mention. Dr Losack is so very proud to have one of his photos owned by Yoko Ono, the wife of Beatle John Lennon. Many high profile people own Dr Losack's work. Dr Robi ( tv commentator/personality/author) owns several pieces of Dr Losack's work.
If in Manhattan or close to it,
please visit Dr Losack's present exhibit, "SYMMETRY" at SOLAS 232 east 9th st between 2nd and 3rd ave. His "CRY" exhibit was a tremendous success. This was to help the impoverished children in INDIA.
Recently GLOSACK is also presenting his M U S I C after 2 1/2 decades of composing and accumulating it. He finally wants it out there and is looking for lyricists. He has written themes for Dr ROBI and other TV intro music.
needless to say he is a busy man........................
He heads to INDIA almost every year, sometimes stopping in Bangladesh for more suffering!
