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.

Elsa comments, “I am honoured to have my work featured by the Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals website and in the selection to be displayed in hospitals across the world. I’ve been an amateur photographer for over 13 years and I’m really proud to be able to contribute to this wonderful program and be able to help people in any way I can during such a difficult time. I found the Foundation through social media and instantly thought it was an amazing idea and I wanted to take part in any way I could. Elaine has been very kind, helpful and patient during all of the process!”

Welcome to our new Contributing Photographer, Jonathan Warren!

Jonathan comments, “I am absolutely honored to have my work included in the selection of pieces to be included in hospitals. Having been a photographer for years, I’ve always wondered what are the best ways to get my photos out into the world and help improve people’s day, and now I’ve found it. Elaine has created a wonderful non-profit with an amazing goal that is crucial to improve quality of care for patients! I’m so happy I stumbled upon her site while doing some research in wellness and was met with this opportunity.”
