A special thank you to Positive Exposure

We had the pleasure of meeting Rick Guidotti, Founder of Positive Exposure recently via a panel discussion run by the Moebius Syndrome Foundation. Our visions and missions were clearly aligned, with both of our organisations being committed to the ‘positive exposure’ of people with facial differences around the world.

Positive Exposure promotes a more inclusive world through award-winning photography, films, exhibitions, lectures and educational programs.

For more than 20 years, POSITIVE EXPOSURE has collaborated globally with nonprofit organizations, hospitals, medical schools, educational institutions and advocacy groups to promote a more equitable and compassionate world where individuals and communities at risk of stigma and exclusion are understood, embraced and celebrated..

We feel incredibly privileged that Rick took some incredible photos to feature as part of the 2021 Face Equality Week campaign. Check out some of the advocates he shot below, on our home page and across our website.

A massive thank you to Rick and to Positive Exposure – keep up the exciting, empowering and vital work!
