Rick Guidotti spent years as a fashion photographer shooting supermodels such as Cindy Crawford & Claudia Schiffer. But now he uses the power of photography to reveal the beauty & dignity of people who are frequently dehumanized by medicine and marginalized by society.
“How do you get people to see those with differences not as victims, but kids and people first and foremost? The pity has to disappear. The fear has to disappear. Behavior has to change. These kids need to be seen as their parents see them, as their friends see them, as valuable and positive parts of society, as beautiful.”
At TEDxPhoenix, Rick shares some of their stories and the empowering effects of a little glamour as he redefines their beauty in a flash. (Filmed at TEDxPhoenix.)
