Nature Heals

Did you know that exposure to nature - even through a photograph - can reduce the need for pain medication and can speed healing? This is only one of the many benefits that a connection to the natural world gives us.

This is one reason why the Guelph General Hospital Foundation chose to commission 60 images of nature by young photographers in the Focus on Nature program as a tribute to the hospital's recently retired CEO.

These photographs, printed on washable plexiglass by Photo Media Decor, are on display at Flo Space in Guelph until December 9th, 2014. After that they move to the hospital where they will forever brighten the lives of patients, visitors and staff alike.

Congratulations to all the young photographers for your beautiful art that will make a positive contribution to the lives of others! The complete Nature Heals collection can be viewed on Flickr.
