I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Elaine Poggi and learn of the wonderful work the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals in 2004. Our Auxiliary was looking for something to brighten our patient rooms. Once we spoke with Elaine and saw first had some of her photo art, we knew we had found what we were looking for. Her photo art was filled with her passion for photography and was sure to brighten and lift the spirits of our patients, families, visitors and the staff. We felt fortunate to be able to purchase such high quality art on a relatively low budget. As we expected (and hoped), the photo art was very well received by our patients, etc. Many asked questions about the photographer and where were some of the pictures taken, etc. This photo art is truly "healing art".

The foundation for Photo Arts is a wonderful project conceived by Elaine Poggi who has traveled the world taking gorgeous life-like pictures of spectacular settings and arranging for them to be housed in hospitals. Ms Poggi felt that patients who are ill would benefit from looking at pictures of real places depicting natural beauty. There is no doubt in my mind about the therapeutic effect of these works of art. At the department of neurosurgery of the university of illinois at chicago, we have had the good fortune of receiving some of these pictures and they have been extremely well received by all who see them. Thank you Elaine for the wonderful contribution you have made the the life of so many people. Fady T. Charbel, M.D.

Working and contributing with the Foundation is a priceless experience. I am honoured to be a tiny tiny part of a process that help people feel better while they are experiencing a very difficult moment of their lives. Part of the beauty of the Foundation is the fact that it was born on empathy for the other and real life experience. If one stops for a moment and imagines the patient condition inside a hospital, one realizes that a patient's mood is a crucial factor. The Foundation lifts that mood in a delicate and unpretentious way, using beauty as a medicine.

The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals, Inc. not only provides comfort, hope and peace to patients, staff and families in the hospital setting through beauty-filled photographs, they are pioneers in the field of epigenetics. As a result of Elaine Poggi's personal experiences with family members and her heart-felt passion to help others, The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is now a leading force in educating the general public and offering them the experience of how an environment can be altered and enhanced to support the body's natural healing process. It is an joy and honor to support their mission and vision to bring healing photo art to the world's healing centers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization as I've walked through the halls of hospitals and feel my body exhale as I slowly pass by one of their photos of a serene beach scene with a beautiful palm tree and I smile with gratitude.

Abbiamo sempre troppo poco tempo per guardarci attorno. Viviamo di corsa, il lavoro ci assilla, a volte manca anche il tempo per la famiglia. Ma quando ci si ammala allora tutto cambia. Le giornate sono lunghissime e ogni dettaglio dell'ambiente in cui ci si trova diviene interessante. Purtroppo gli ospedali oltre a essere luoghi di sofferenza spesso sono anche squallidi. Elaine con le sue foto apre fantastiche finestre su quel mondo che non ci siamo mai fermati abbastanza a osservare e le pone in luoghi dove c'è tutto il tempo per apprezzarle.

The FOUNDATION FOR PHOTO ART is dear to me because much like Elaine’s experience, my mother also spent a few months in hospitals until passing away in a 2002 in a hospice in New York City. For the months I essentially took residency in these hospitals, I too noticed how bare the walls were and wondered how a place like this could be made less cold. When I met Elaine and learned about what she did with the foundation I was very moved. I was even happier when she asked me to donate one of my own photos, which I did, proudly. I truly believe that these photos bring a ray of joy and inspiration into the lives of people who really need it. I am grateful to Elaine for giving me the opportunity to participate even if in a small way. Keep up the amazing work!

How can I not rave about the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals? Their mission is a noble one: to place nature art in hospitals to give comfort and hope to patients. Their leadership is passionate and professional. I have met with their president (Elaine Poggi) several times and am impressed by her ambition and determination. Their reach is global and they make their services available and affordable to all.

I have told many people about this organization, especially photo artists who would cherish knowing about this opportunity to make a difference to so many simply by sharing their gifts as photographers. I have worked with the Executive Director, Elaine Poggi, and am sincerely impressed by her passion for helping advance healing through photo arts in medical settings and her generosity as staff. Anyone associated with this endeavor will experience a great sense of achievement and goodwill to others. It is a program worth supporting in whatever means possible.

I saw the birth of the Foundation and from the beginning I was moved by the depth of the feelings that inspired it. I have always been in admiration of Elaine's ideals, passion and committment. She is doing a great job, I heve seen her work in hospitals here in Florence and felt very proud to know Elaine and be her friend.
