Foundation For Photo Art In Hospitals is very good initiative. I really appreciate their work. Thanks :-)
Know that one of my images so 'as those of many other artists in the world can give a smile to those who are ill is something that fills me with pride.
A great compliment to Elaine Poggi and the founding Healing photo art, 'it was great to talk with her and I am grateful for the interest in my work.

I always loved being around nature and beautiful landscapes so I decided to learn digital photography. When I read Elaine's story about her mom and how she started the Foundation for photo art in the hospital's I knew I needed to get involved so I donated my photo. I feel very honored to have an opportunity to share my work and help someone find peace and wellness.

Elaine's dedication is remarkable. I'm grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this fine organisation.
I am a Nature and Landscape Photographer that wanted to share my work in hospitals and medical facilities to help healing to the patients. I contacted Elaine and donated one of my photos to her organization. A few months later she found a home for my art work-Peace Inc. in Buffalo New York. Thanks Elaine for your dedication to the cause and vision to help join artists and the people that receiving healing from their work. John Munno www.johnmunnophotography.com
I contributed a photograph of the Mediterranean Sea from the cost of Giglio Island to be used by this foundation. I am a firm believer in the power art has to heal the world, and this nonprofit is doing just that. If you close your eyes and visualize the interior of a hospital, I'm sure you'd see plain white walls and floors accompanied by sick and depressed individuals. This foundation is changing that! Imagine walking into what you'd expect to be a dreary and cold atmosphere, and instead you're greeted with warmth and comfort by the colorfully decorated walls. Your environment does play a vital role in your emotional, and even physical, well-being. Beautiful art hung along the walls of hospitals would surely ease the anxiety of patients young and old, as well as loved ones and care givers. My hat goes off to this idea by the Foundation For Photo Art In Hospitals Inc., and I am proud to be a contributing photographer for their cause!
I had a dream of sharing my love of nature photography with others so possibly through my pictures they could find a personal journey for themselves. Foundation for photo art/healing art has given me that opportunity. They helped me sort through several photos to finding the one that could become a photo journey. They worked with me through the learning curve to computer download and to their organization so my dream could reach others.
What an amazing, inspiring, and professional foundation! Elaine Poggi is a poineering international leader with integrity, compassion, courage, and results.
