When you’re different, you feel like the entire world is watching your every move. People with genetic conditions like albinism have never felt beautiful. My mission is to change that.
After spending years on the fashion runways in New York City, Paris and Milan, I had seen one kind of beauty. But then, I found a different kind of beauty. I left the fashion industry and started Positive Exposure in 1998.Positive Exposure uses artwork and photography to challenge the stigma of being different. I have learned the person comes first, not what’s on the outside. I’ve captured some of the most beautiful people in the world – and they’re not supermodels.
I am happy to spread this message around the globe. I hope you will join me at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, for a special presentation in Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s Briggs & Stratton Auditorium in Milwaukee. Learn more about this event.
Let’s learn to love the skin you’re in and celebrate our differences.
-Rick Guidotti, co-founder and director, Positive Exposure
