Many thanks to our new Contributing Photographer, Yasmin Schepens, from Vancouver, Canada for this lovely photo! Yasmin comments, “Nature has always helped me heal faster. It is just the way nature works. It is miraculous.  When some people are not able to go out in nature anymore it is so important for them to still be able to experience the effect nature has on human beings.  Photographs are an excellent way to evoke that same feeling even if you have to stay inside. Bringing the outside in, is an amazing way to deal with depression and it calms the mind.  I am a believer in what Healing Photo Art accomplishes and that’s why I have also donated one of my photos.  It is a wonderful initiative that was created out of love and that’s why it is so powerful and true. Thank you Elaine! 

Our photos in Bergamo, Italy

Photo Project in Bergamo

My friend, Giorgio Seminati, from Bergamo who was infected with COVID-19 wrote me this morning that he is finally out of the Bergamo hospital after 2 months of a really, really tough time and 4 COVID-19 tests. His daughter was one of his nurses. His brother died of the virus a month ago. This is real life for many in Italy… and I am understanding more and more the suffering that this virus is bringing to many around the world… I met Giorgio 7 years ago when we coordinated a project of 250 photos for the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, (where he spent the last two months).

Lizzie Ritchie, Spring Intern

Welcome to Lizzie Ritchie, our new Spring Intern

Hi everyone! My name is Lizzie and I am so thrilled to introduce myself as a new intern for Healing Photo Art. It’s going to be an exciting next couple of months working alongside Elaine and getting to know the foundation. I’m so excited to have the chance to intertwine my love for photography and nature throughout the duration of this internship! I’m in my third year at the University of Minnesota and when I’m not writing a paper working towards completing my English and Art degrees, you can find me out and about with a camera in my hands. Can’t wait to see what is in store for the next couple of months! Ciao!
