Photographer Left The Fashion Industry To Take Images Of People With Genetic Conditions.
Rick Guidotti was at the height of his career as a photographer. Guidotti travelled to Milan, Paris and New York to photograph what he was told were the most beautiful people in the world. One day he spotted a gorgeous woman in Manhattan. Her look was not the standard of what he was use to working with. The girl had the genetic condition of albinism.
Guidotti says, “in fashion I was always frustrated because I was told who I had to photograph. I was always told who was beautiful.”
Guidotti said goodbye to the world of fashion. He turned his lens to people with genetic or physical differences. Guidotti started the not-for-profit organization Positive Exposure. He is hoping the images will humanize his models and also show their beauty. His work is receiving even more attention with the film, On Beauty.
Take a look at what fashion magazines do to achieve their standard of beauty.
