Welcome to our new Contributing Photographer, Kenneth Wagner!  Enjoy his beautiful photo, ‘Breaking Waves’!

Kenneth comments, “I found out about this organization through a dear friend. I’ve loved taking photos since a teen and could afford my first Instamatic. Work and business put most of my hobby on the back burner for years. In the last few years we finally began traveling and my love of photography was rekindled. When I learned about the possibility of sharing my passion with hospitals and maybe giving patients or their families a brighter day I couldn’t wait to submit a few photos. I’ve seen these types of photos on the walls of hospitals in St. Louis and always wondered where they came from. Now I know and will be thrilled if any of my photographs can make someone smile or make them forget their pain for just a while. At my age, giving something back to others makes me smile. Thank you Elaine and your organization for all that you do.”

Many thanks to our new Contributing Photographer, Jeffrey Steefel, for his lovely photo!

Jeffrey comments, “I have long been looking for a way to put my landscape photography to good use by donating images for hospitals and places of healing and have found it surprisingly difficult. In searching, I discovered the foundation which does exactly that! I have unfortunately spend a lot of time in hospitals with ailing family members dealing with cancer and the surroundings can feel sterile and anything that brings the beauty of nature to the environment is a blessing. I find nature personally healing and photography has always been a way to get out and appreciate the beauty all around us. I am grateful to this organization for everything they do.”

Celebrating 20 Years of Healing Photo Art

Florence, Italy

Photo by Elaine Poggi of Florence, Italy

 20 years ago The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals was incorporated as a 501(c)3 USA nonprofit. I created it to honor my mother, who spent her last months in the hospital. I have put my heart and soul into placing beautiful nature photos in hospitals around the world. Many thanks to our 440 Contributing Photographers, to our Board of Directors and International Board of Advisors, to our interns, volunteers, and donors. It is because of you that we have placed 10,402 photos in hospitals on all 7 continents! Please donate whatever you can to keep our work expanding into the future. Thank you so much!!

Thank you, Larisa Crockett, for your amazing photo taken in Greece!

Larisa comments, “When a photograph is taken it’s meant to be viewed by others. Isn’t that wonderful when it’s displayed in the facilities like hospitals where a lot of people are in need of beautiful thoughts and feelings that can be arisen by the art with a great benefit for mind and spirit. Visual art has a positive psychological effect on the brain and like many scientific studies show they help in healing and are equally beneficial to those who are healthy. I am very happy to find the Foundation and contribute into this noble cause.”

Sandra comments, “I have always believed that photography can play a great role in enhancing environments to create a positive healing space so was thrilled when I came across the Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals. I contacted Elaine and she responded very quickly and chose this Aurora photo I took in the Arctic. It was an extremely easy process and I am very happy to be working with the Foundation. It’s a lovely feeling to know that my work may be of benefit to someone when going through a difficult time. I can’t wait to see where my photo ends up.”
