Welcome to our new Contributing Photographer Amelia Khan from St. Louis, Missouri!
Amelia comments, “I first discovered the Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals when I was a student at St. Louis Community College, taking an Introduction to Human Services course. For an assignment, I had to find a nonprofit organization, conduct an interview with someone who is a part of it, and write a reflection, to get a better understanding of what they do within. I was lucky enough to meet with the founder, Elaine, and she was so kind to meet with me virtually so I could interview her to learn more about what she created. Not shortly after, she gave me the opportunity to become a contributor to the foundation and my photo has recently been posted on her sites! I am thrilled to be a part of this organization that has turned a simple idea into something spectacular around the world. Elaine and everyone else who is a part of making this foundation what it is are incredible in making it happen. I hope to meet with Elaine and other contributors to the foundation one day and continue helping to make patients in hospitals around the world feel at ease in their setting!”
