Healing Photo Art

Healing Photo Art is a non profit organization with a desire to place large, framed photographs of nature and beautiful places from around the world in hospitals. Founder Elaine Poggi thought of the idea after staring at the white sterile walls surrounding her and her ill mother. “Out of desperation to bring life and color back into her mother’s life during her stay, she decided to alleviate the cold and unfriendly hospital environment by decorating her room with her enlarged photographs of underwater scenes and landscapes of Florence.” (More about Elaine here)

More than 4000 photos have been placed in over 250 facilities on 7 continents!

“I have always believed in the transformational power of art; in its ability to move and engage people, and to bring them together.  The true reward from working with the Foundation was seeing your photography transform the doctors’ and patients’ eyes, igniting, as it seemed, hope and joy.  I wish you luck in your future endeavors.”
Dominika Nicman, Warsaw, Poland
