I worked with Elaine to install some photographs in a hospital in Pailin, Cambodia. This hospital provided only the most basic care, and her pictures brightened the wards and opened up the patients view of the world. Thanks Elaine for your good work througout the world. Dr. Francisco Grijalva

Elaine presented her Foundation to me a few years ago. I spent some time understanding and becoming sensitive to the messages she wants to deliver to humanity through her Foundation: we need to share our love, we need to give back, we need to appreciate the most simple things in nature, we need people and we need to love people. She is amazing! Thanks Elaine. After various discussions and after listening to her personal experience of the death of her mother, I decided to help in my small way so I visited a hospital where my wife and I donated some of Elaine’s pictures. The sight of the corridors where the patients with cancer wait before entering for their treatments, the sight of the seats and machines where the patients have to stay during their sessions made me partially understand what she meant. I feel lucky everyday for having the chance to breathe fresh air, to see beauty around me, to smell the fragrances of flowers, to swim in blue seas, to touch nature, to project my dreams into the sky, to listen to the sound of life, to feel free, to move...To feel light...To love my family and my friends. Elaine dedicates her time, her energy, her life to give hope to people. To give them hope and strength to fight their illnesses. To see beyond the cold and hard walls of life. Forza Elaine!

I was deeply in pressed by the idea of improving the atmosphere for those who are hospitalized either as outpatients or those admitted for extended periods. I have seen the photos and the way they transform stark, depressing areas into pleasant places. Photos are not just images - they often trigger a good memory and /or pleasant thoughts. They mean different things to different people. They can give hope in times of despair, not only for the patient, but the family members as well.Through the donations of its supporters and the efforts of the founder and board, photo art has been installed around the world in big and small hospitals, for adults and children.

The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals has a great idea! Imagine the healing joy that comes from looking up from your hospital bed and seeing the beauty of nature captured in photos. And I can tell you first-hand that the people who bring this idea to reality are dedicated, creative people who will do all they can to match the generosity of donors with opportunities all over the world.

Speaking as a professional fundraiser with 20 years' experience,now retired, I can attest that Elaine Poggi's dedication to her mission, added to the energy with which she promotes it, ensure its ongoing success. Two suggestions: research and follow through on (1) which med schools are studying the effects of attractive environments on patient outcomes, and (2) which corporations, USA and abroad, involved in digital photography would consider requests for major gifts. Then submit relevant proposals. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is an important project and deserves our generous support.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...my visits to the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis, MO. Elaine's photos are prominent there. To see them, rather than a blank beige wall, and travel in my imagination to, for example, a valley in Umbria, can ease an otherwise stressful event.

Ho avuto il piacere di vedere fino dal suo inizio la nascita e la crescita della Foundation ed ho avuto anche l'onore di vedere come ogni giorno la Signora Elaine portava avanti il suo progetto con impegno e soprattutto tanto amore e tanta passione. Ed è questo che rende la Foundation for Photo Art in Hospital una iniziativa davvero speciale: nasce dal cuore di una donna come noi, che ha sofferto nel profondo la malattia e la perdita di una persona cara e che ha saputo trasformare questo dolore in un cosa bella e positiva per il prossimo. In questo modo di oggi dove l'individualismo e l'idifferenza sono ormai all'ordine del giorno, l'iniziativa personale di qualcuno che si occupi di sostenere, senza alcun profitto, l'animo di persone malate e di coloro che vi sono intorno è cosa rara ed unica. Sono fiera di aver avuto l'opportunità di entrare in contatto con la Foundation ed in particolar modo con la Signora Elaine perchè toccare con mano tanto impegno sincero e genuino scalda il cuore e fa sentire meno soli. Auguro con tutto ilcuore lunga vita alla Foundation ed a tutti i volontari che mettono ogni giorno un pò delle loro energie affinchè essa vada avanti e continui un'opera immensa di beneficio in tutto il mondo.

The photos placed in the hospitals around the world add warmth and joy to spaces filled with illness and fear. Elaine's views of nature offer people suffering and in pain a window onto the beauty of God's creation and provide hope to many in need. The Foundation has collected testimonies of their effectiveness which will be presented at a symposium in Florence this Spring.

My husband and I have seen Elaine's photos and know that her work is exceptional. Elaine has a passion for bringing art, and thereby bringing stimulation and comfort to those in hospitals. We remember seeing the cold, dreary hospital room that Elaine's mother occupied during her lengthy illness. Elaine hung her own photos to bring her cheer. We know that her photos are in many parts of the world and commend her efforts. We hope she continues her great work.

My local hospital in Urbana, Illinois has started to use more art work in patient rooms. I think Elaine Poggi and her foundation have influenced designers of hospitals.

I have been so incredibly blessed to work with Elaine Poggi, founder of the Foundation for Photo Art. Having worked in third world countries, I know the impact these photographs are having with the hurting & sick. There is nothing more powerful that an inspiring & colorful piece of artwork in what would otherwise be a cold & stark atmosphere. Elaine's passion for her foundation is absolutely extraordinary, and has humbled me both professionally & personally. I am looking forward to taking her, along with her contributing photographers, artwork to a small village in Kenya next month.
