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".

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.

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.

I've seen photos for the first time on the wall of an Hospital in Florence and it gave me a good feeling about all those beautifull pictures in such a sad environment. Later I made a donation to the foundation and helped placing photos in a Rome Hospital. I think that this foundation has a strong power giving happiness and hope to get out of the Hospital to all recovered people. Keep doing that Elaine is such a beautiful thing!!!

The photos placed in hospitals by this foundation depict beautiful scenery from many different locations around the world. I have seen these high quality photos in hospital locations in St. Louis and in Sparta, Il, while visiting friends and relatives in these facilities. I find them to be inspiring and a lift to the spirit.

From the first time Elaine Poggi opened the trunk of her car to show us her beautiful photographs and shared her vision for the Foundation of Photo Art in Hospitals, we have been fans. Our local hospital has benefitted from the Foundation’s work and we have observed the difference colorful photos make when they are introduced in the monochromatic, sterile hospital environment. Far more remarkable, however, is the difference made in the lives of people. The patients, their friends and family, and the hospital staff can all escape the worry and pressure of the hospital atmosphere when they see the colors and images on the walls. The photos add beautiful points of focus that help patients to think of places or things beyond themselves and hope for a better time. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is truly making the world a better place and it’s doing it one photo at a time.

Elaine Uchtman Poggi started this admirable foundation some years ago, utilizung her own especially beautiful photographs to enliven normally sterile hospital rooms, corridors, and waiting areas. Her exceptional photographs of both scenery and people are now cheering patients and visitors in many parts of the world. One wonders why someone didn't think of this project before. All praise to Elaine Poggi... Horace Gibson
