Reviews for Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals Inc
Elaine is a jewel! So encouraging and helpful in the process.. You can feel her heart and warmth and compassion.
I am proud and honored to be a contributing photographer to this amazing organization which is working to provide an atmosphere of comfort and healing to patients and their families when they need it the most. Founder and President, Elainne Poggi, is incredibly passionate about the benefits of art in hospitals and my experience with the foundation was excellent. I hope that my photograph is able to relive someone's stress and anxiety and play a small part in the healing process.
It is an honor to be a contributing photographer to Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals. Patients and their family often feel nervous, vulnerable, and uncomfortable in hospitals. The sterile environment is cold and uninviting. Nature art allows the patient to escape momentarily, and brings a sense of calm and comfort. As a patient and a family member of a patient, I can attest that beautiful nature art is a much appreciated feature in a hospital. It brings me much personal satisfaction to contribute this wonderful cause. My hope is that one day my art will bring a sense of comfort to someone in a hospital. The concept of this Foundation is novel, and important to hospital patients worldwide.
Elaine the president and curator of the Foundation is fabulous. She was quick to respond to my emails, and she works tirelessly to support the Foundation. My entire experience with this organization was positive, and I would recommend working with the Foundation to both photographers and hospitals.
I feel very honored to be a contributing photographer for thus very fine organization which provides joy and peace to hospitalized patients!
The work done by this foundation is amazing, they bring joy to the sick and people sometimes tend to forget that they deserve to be as happy as they can and the possibility provided by the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals can make them forget their pain while they look at the photos. My experience (as a contributing photographer) with them was nothing less then spectacular! Kudos for their work!
Best nonprofit foundation to connect the work of art with the healing. Keep going! Good job!
I am grateful to Fondation For Photo Art in Hospitals to the great meaning that an initiative like this has. Bring the beauty in hospitals, through photographs, means bring hope, good energy to persons who need support. Thank You Elaine!

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.
