Albany Community Hospice seeks local photo scenescapes

“Currently, there is a wall in each room that isn’t being utilised, and we felt that rather than continue to have a blank wall, we wanted to create an even more homely atmosphere, by reminding guests and their families of the local area.” (Albany Hospice)

Albany Community Hospice is looking to make guests rooms even more home-like, by inviting local photographers to donate a scenescape of the area to be printed and hung in the patient rooms.

The intention is to have photos of local scenery to provide a recognisable backdrop for patients and their families during their stay at the Hospice.

Support Services manager Sarah-Louise Collins said there was a wall in each room that was not being utilised.

“We felt that rather than continue to have a blank wall, we wanted to create an even more homely atmosphere, by reminding guests and their families of the local area,” she said.

“We are reaching out to the local photographers and hoping that they have immersive images that they are willing to donate so we can print and use them here in the guest rooms.”

Hospice is looking for high-resolution images to printed at an approximate size of 1.4-1.5m wide by 60-70cm high.

Albany Community Hospice would like a variety of images, such as Beach/Ocean, Forest, Farmland, Townscape/Historic, Mountain, River, Harbour, Wheatbelt, to add a bit of flair and nostalgia to the guest rooms and make their Hospice stay more enjoyable.

Photographers are welcome to contact Sarah-Louise Collins on 9892 2456 or email admin@albanyhospice.org.au .
