Dermatology Patients get 'Supermodel' Treatment
December 30, 2019
Pediatric dermatology patients at M Health Fairview are receiving supermodel treatment thanks to photographer Rick Guidotti's and his project to capture authenticity.
"The staring, the bullying. Those are huge problems for our patients, the lack of confidence knowing they are different," said Sheilagh Maguiness, MD.
Rick Guidotti, a fashion photographer who has worked for magazines such as GQ and Life, started a nonprofit called "Positive Exposure" which aims to capture authentic beauty. He worked with a variety of patients who are receiving treatment at the Pediatric Specialty Clinic.
Now, 14 patients have their portraits hung throughout the clinic, highlight what makes them unique.
