Humanizing Hospitals Through Healing Photo Art

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 empty 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.

Karuna comments, “I was introduced to this organization through a friend. I love what they do!! Having worked in hospitals and now working in hospice, I completely understand the role that art plays in healing and comfort. I have been a photographer for the last 13 years and I am honored that one of my photos was chosen by this organization. They are stellar and made the process very easy.”

Many thanks to our new Contributing Photographer Deborah Roy for her lovely photo!  Deborah writes, “What an absolute pleasure to work with Elaine and the Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals. I discovered this wonderful nonprofit through the North American Nature Photography Association. I have long known the benefits of nature imagery to one’s mental and health status and wanted to find a way to play a role in helping others achieve this benefit. Working with Elaine made this a seamless process. She was extraordinary in her communication, very professional, and personable. I am excited to have my work benefit others around the globe. Thank you for this opportunity!”
