Artist Annabel Konig recently finished installing 31 photographic images in a nursing unit in Dublin, Ireland. These images are all of nature, some show animals such as donkeys, dogs, lambs and then there are images of sunsets, park benches in luscious greens or rivers with quiet swans.

The work also helps the patient’s family who come to visit by sparking a recollection of a story or happy time.
