ALPERN EYES ISRAEL FROM ALL ANGLES

“Israel Unwrapped” features roughly a dozen panoramic photographs of historic, religious and scenic sites in Israel by the self-taught, Chicago-born Andy Alpern. The photographs — including “Copper Kotel: The Western Wall at Night,” “The Shuk Vol. 1: Machane Yehudah,” “Dead Sea: Ashanti Camp Site,” “Arizal’s View” in Safed and “The Banias Waterfall” — were taken between 1997 and 2001, when Alpern lived in Israel, working as a tour guide and photographer. After creating a Web site presenting virtual tours of sites in Israel, Alpern began printing the 360-degree panoramas from his site, which range in length from 3.5 feet to 6.5 feet. Ten percent of the net proceeds from his photography benefit environmental and social-justice organizations in Israel. The exhibit also includes 10 photographs from last year’s “Environmental Bike Ride,” organized by Hazon, the Jewish environmental organization that is also sponsoring the exhibit.

Makor, 35 W. 67th St.; opening reception July 24, 7 p.m.-9 p.m., exhibition through Sept. 30, Mon.-Thu., 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Sun., noon-6 p.m.; free. (212-601-1000 or www.golemproductions.com/unwrapped)
