An Evening with Rick Guidotti.

14 Feb 2014

Rick Guidotti does amazing work with his camera to show people with disabilities in a true light. Rick Guidotti started as a photographer for models, but found that to be unsatisfying.

Then Rick noticed a girl with albinism at a bus stop. It inspired him to start taking pictures of people with disabilities and he soon found Positive Exposure. Soon enough, he was taking pictures of people with differences. Too often, when we see pictures of people who are different, it’s in a medical context. It doesn’t showcase who the person is at all.

When I met Rick Guidotti, I was attending an event at a friend’s house for Rick. He was amazing to talk to and I was impressed that he was showing who people with disabilities truly are, not just what their disability is. Rick is truly a great person to know. So I invite those in Cincinnati to attend this free event with me and ReelAbilities Cincinnati to see how Rick’s photography captures the essence of a person’s soul.

See you at the 21c Museum Hotel at 6pm! The event is free, but please reserve your spot soon!

Rick Guidotti, an award-winning former fashion photographer, has spent the past fifteen years using photography to effect a sea-change in societal attitudes towards individuals living with genetic difference. Join us at this free event as Rick presents an artists lecture focusing on his work and the power of art to change perceptions.
