Fashion photographer focuses on those with genetic conditions to reframe beauty
Rick Guidotti’s life has been all about beauty and the power of images. He spent years as a fashion photographer in Milan, Paris, and New York. But 15 years ago, while photographing a woman with Albinism, Guidotti was shocked by images in medical textbooks. Those medical pictures changed his life and ever since Guidotti has devoted his talent to the disabled. Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.Interviewed for NBC’s Rock Center, photographer Rick Guidotti said: “It’s not about saying, “Compare Claudia Schiffer or Cindy Crawford to this girl. It’s about— it’s about reinterpreting beauty. It’s about having an opportunity to see beyond what you’re told and what we’re forced to believe that that’s beauty.”Guidotti’s life has been all about beauty and the power of images. He spent years as a fashion photographer in Milan, Paris, and with a studio in New York, always shooting what fashion editors decreed to be beauty.
Then, fifteen years ago, when he considered photographing a woman with a disability, he was shocked at images in medical textbooks he consulted. Where, he asked, is the humanity?“It’s terrifying,” Guidotti said, “There’s other ways to present this. I’ve spoken to so many genetic counselors who have a family in front of them and say ‘Ok, this is what your daughter is going to have. Read this.’ And they cover up the photograph because it will freak the family right out.. There’s gotta be something else we can do. There’s gotta be another way to present that information to that family.”You can see more of Guidotti’s pictures at the Positive Exposure web site.
if it comes down to it i can just draw the stuff and then send it in via my phone for hswc but i’m not sure i can get skype working from my phone w/o wifi and it would kind of suck not being able to talk to anyone on the team
but it might not come down to that anyway
interenet is working now
but there is a distinct chance that it will no longer be working a few weeks from now yaaayyyy
bl gk bh
ok so my house doesn’t have internet right now (or tv or phone) and idk when tjat’s going to get fixed but it might take a while
probably I am still going to be able to participate in hswc but for now I can’t exactly do much sorry
