Connections: The Positive Exposure Exhibition

Oct 1, 2015

This is the story of a high-end fashion photographer whose life changed when, by chance, he bumped into a girl with albinism in Manhattan.

That moment changed Rick Guidotti, who went home and thought about people with genetic differences. He felt that too often, people with differences were dehumanized, treated as a disease in medical textbooks -- not as people. So he quit the fashion industry and created a new organization designed to honor beauty in all people. It's called Positive Exposure.

Rick is coming to Rochester because he shot several local subjects for an exhibit at the Eastman House to recognize the Golisano Foundation's 30th anniversary.
