Insults, fear, discrimination and hatred based on genetic, physical and behavioral differences plague our society.  Award winning, former fashion photographer Rick Guidotti challenges the stigma associated with difference by celebrating the beauty of human diversity with POSITIVE EXPOSURE. Through positive images and powerful life stories, observe how POSITIVE EXPOSURE helps us see individuals living with a genetic difference first and foremost as a human being with his/her own challenges rather than as a specific diagnosis/disease entity.
