Many thanks to our new Contributing Photographer, Rob Haynes, for his photo of a swan taking off!

Rob comments, “I was very impressed with the Foundation’s work in providing PhotoArt on a global scale to Hospitals and healthcare facilities who benefit from having inspirational imagery within the hospital environment.

I think it vitally important to patients, staff and visitors, to have inspirational imagery within a clinical environment and for some a traumatic experience. If my work and the work of the foundation can make life easier for patients then I’m happy to contribute to such a worthy cause.”

Maile comments, “Working as a nurse in multiple hospitals in Oregon I have seen first hand the impact a hospital environment has on healing and recovery both physically and mentally. I have been passionate about landscape and adventure/travel photography for over a decade, and am excited to share my photographs that embody calm, peace, and connection with the elements. Sharing and promoting these qualities in hospitals worldwide and making nature accessible to all is truly nurturing and grounding to the soul. Thank you to Elaine for bringing this foundation into being!”

Mike comments, “I first learned about the Foundation for Photos/Art in Hospitals from a friend in church. The organization’s mission to place uplifting landscape art in hospitals and clinics around the world, lifting the spirits of patients and their families in what is often a seemingly cold and impersonal environment, is inspiring. I was honored to be asked to contribute to their offering and pray my work may help those who need some encouragement.”

Many thanks to Richard Brett, our new Contributing Photographer, for his lovely photo!

Richard comments, “I saw a post about the Foundation – and its work – on Linked In from a former colleague.  This seemed to me to be a very worthwhile cause and so I provided a photo to the foundation, because I think the work they are doing is inspiring.

We live in a beautiful world and to see nature in all its glory can be a deeply spiritual experience.  When you are in hospital, you need to feel uplifted and inspired. Photographs of the natural world can help and I hope that, in some small way, I can contribute to people feeling that way.

Working with Elaine to provide a photo was very enjoyable. She made it all very easy and I would certainly recommend – and encourage – other people to do the same.”

Enjoy this lovely photo by our new Contributing Photographer, David Swasko!

David comments, ““Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love” – Mother Teresa. As part of my work a few years ago, I began searching online listings for “alternative healing modalities” in hospitals and Hospices, and discovered the “Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals”. What a pleasant (and fortuitous!) surprise. I first met Elaine Poggi, founder of the foundation, over 50 years ago. I knew back even then, she had a heart of gold and generous giving spirit. Fast forward 50 years and we have since reconnected via this incredible project. I have been amazed to learn the geographical extent, significance and meaningful impact the project has had toward fulfilling the Foundation’s goal and mission of “humanizing healthcare environments.” Hippocrates famously said, “Physicians Treat, Nature Heals”. Individually, every picture is a “small thing”, and yet it conveys each photographer’s gratitude and witness to its captured beauty…and coveys and shares to the viewer the inherent healing potential of nature. Collectively, all the “little” pictures make this project a “great thing”, by healing the heart and soul of its viewer and environments. I hope my foto contributes to that goal. I shoot mostly in a state of wonder and awe whenever in a wilderness area. I think Mother Teresa and Hippocrates would both agree that this project is preeminently from, and for, healing the heart…and that the project is in fact accomplishing “a great thing!” A true work of heArt!”
