I have known Elaine Poggi and her Foundation for many years and greatly admire her motivation, creativity, and determination. As a clinical psychologist in Florence, Italy I often encourage my patients to make their own original drawings or go out in the city and take photos of whatever may stimulate them. This allows them, especially the patients with depression to express their own feelings and to discover their own creativity. Also in my office I have many paintings and sketches, some given to me by former patients and others by professional artists both well known in Florence or novices in the art community. I frequently ask my patients to carefully observe a painting or a photo and to tell me their first impressions, their reactions, emotions they may feel while looking at it. This helps to open up some new areas of importance that might have been unconscoius or repressed before.

My husband and I were vacationing with friends on the island of Antigua early in 2012. One of our new friends on the island is nurse supervisor at St. John's Medical Center there. We told her that we are acquainted with The Foundation of Photo/Art in Hospitals and its Director Elaine Poggi. We admire Elaine's dedication to the Foundation and its mission to place beautiful photographs in hospitals all over the world. Thanks to the Foundation's generosity, we were able facilitate a donation of framed prints for St. John's Medical Center.

The Foundation is leading the way in establishing photo art in hospitals all over the globe. As an advisor of an Art for Healing program at a hospital in Pennsylvania, I appreciated the Foundation's offer of a donation of five prints to add to our small collection.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

place beautiful photographs in every hospital in the world, including those facilities in remote areas. The healing power of the donated art would help to comfort patients and their caretakers as proven in evidence based studies.

Photgraphs help heal and lift spirits. The Foundation does that in spades.

My initial experience was meeting and working with Elaine Poggi on a successful artwork project for a children's hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. From there we have shared a friendship and continued interest in photo/art and how it can impact patients and many types of healthcare environments. Currently, I am serving as a board member and helping to support Elaine's significant efforts to extend the Foundation's reach to many healthcare facilities and clinics throughout the world - especially those in special need of "healing photo/art".

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that it focuses on how a patient's experince can be enhanced and improved by the artwork surrounding them. Whether it is in a public hospital corridor or a private patient room these colorful photo/art images often serve as the only "windows to the world"

Response was fast when I asked about contributing art to the Foundation. Elaine handled things very professionally and is a delight to work with. Elaine emailed me that my contribution was used in a hospital recently and which hospital it was used in. I appreciated that kind of follow up. From everything I have seen, the Foundation is a wonderful organization to work with.

Art is the language of the unspoken soul. Nature is the language of our existance and capturing both.... is indeed a rare gift. Elaine has the gift to capture both and is willing to share her talents so that others may reap the benefits of experiencing nature and art whenever they find themselves in an indoor environment far removed from what it is that the soul needs to speak.

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.

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.

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.
