Welcome to our new Contributing Photographer, Molly Shwiff!

Molly comments, “Soon after arriving to Italy as a study abroad student, I learned that I had the opportunity to intern for Healing Photo Art, an amazing foundation with a mission very close to my heart. Elaine’s goal of bringing healing to patients and easing anxiety for those in healthcare settings is something that means a lot to me. After recently visiting my grandma in hospitals and then hospice, some of the most special memories we shared together were talking about the beautiful nature photographs that hung on the walls of her rooms. I saw the peace and happiness that just these photos brought, even when she was in pain, and I now have a newfound appreciation for these beautiful photographs in healthcare settings. Elaine is one of the most genuine and caring people that I have met, and she shows us, through all the amazing work she does, what it means to truly help others. I am so thankful that I get the opportunity to contribute to the mission of Healing Photo Art.”

Myra comments, “I found Healing Photo Art when I was studying abroad in Florence, looking for an opportunity to engage with local culture and make a positive impact. The prospect of using my photography to bring comfort, hope, and healing to individuals in local hospitals resonated deeply with my values and professional goals. Elaine’s kindhearted nature and genuine compassion also shone through in every interaction I’ve had with her as a student intern and contributing photographer, fostering a sense of purpose and community that fuels our collective efforts. I am so grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this amazing organization!”

Welcome to our new Contributing Photographer, Nicolo’ Petrocchi!

Nicolo’ comments, “As a high school student passionate about photography, I saw my passions for nature and photography embodied by the Healing Photo Art Foundation’s mission. Elaine and I personally met to discuss the possibility of me becoming a contributing photographer. Having submitted my photos, officially becoming a contributing photographer and presenting the foundation to my school was not the best part. My favorite thing is being overwhelmed with joy every time Elaine tells me about my pictures being requested and patients telling her how much they like my photos. This foundation is something different, unprecedented in its mission and obliging with the community, especially with those people in physical or mental agony who need to find relief and, what better way than to let them experience the beauty and colors of our Earth through their own eyes?”

Many thanks to Marco Alexander Rodriguez, our new Contributing Photographer, for his lovely photo!

Marco comments, “I had always wondered where the art in hospitals came from. After conducting some research, I discovered this foundation for Photos and art in Hospitals. I admired the foundation’s mission to give comfort and hope to patients, families, and caretakers. Photography is an activity I enjoy doing in my free time. I did not know that my pictures could help others until I stumbled across Ms. Elaine Poggi’s website, where I was able to become a contributing photographer and donate my image with ease. I am thankful to her and the foundation for giving me the opportunity to make my everyday hobby of taking pictures become so much more.”

Many thanks to Sydney Tomes, our new Contributing Photographer, for her lovely photo!

Sydney comments, “I am so excited to have my art be a part of Healing Photo Art. I heard about Healing Photo Art through my public health class at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I have many friends and family that are currently in different hospitals in Minnesota and it has saddened me to hear about all of the white walls they see when they are stuck in the hospital. I love taking photos, and I am excited that I get to share one of my photos! I hope that my photo brings healing and happiness to patients!”
