Photographer Quits Fashion To Photograph People With Genetic Conditions To Show Beauty Is Everywhere

Published 4 years ago

Rick Guidotti is a fashion photographer bored with high fashion. That’s why he started photographing people with genetic conditions – and the documentary “On Beauty” is all about his work. Guidotti felt that the standards of the industry are too narrow. After a chance meeting with a woman with albinism, he decided to seek out other people with genetic conditions and use his photography skills to humanize them.

Rick Guidotti has worked with Elle, GQ, Revlon, and L’Oreal before deciding to found Positive Exposure in 1998. The organization uses photography and video to transform perception of people with genetic, physical and behavioral differences. “On Beauty” is the movie documenting their work.

Writes like a mad dervish, rolls to dodge responsibility, might have bitten the Moon once.
