Placing Healing Art Where It’s Needed Most

Nature images can help heal the soul, which in turn helps heal the body.

White, cold, sterile walls exemplify the traditional hospital setting, where stress, pain, fear and loneliness abound. Staring at these walls is boring and depressing. The mood changes when our beautiful nature photos are placed on the walls, providing color, comfort, and hope to patients, caregivers, and loved ones.

The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals was established in the USA in 2002 by photographer Elaine Poggi, who turned her personal tragedy of the loss of her mother into a worldwide campaign to bring photos of nature to hospitals.

Offering an extensive portfolio of nature photos ranging from tropical beaches to Japanese cherry blossoms to the Tuscan hills, donated by Elaine and other photographers from all corners of the world, the nonprofit Foundation seeks funding to cover printing, framing, and shipping expenses so that the cost to hospitals is minimal or none at all.
