Taking a Break From the Hiss.Spit.Growl…

… Because being crabby all the time is a lot of work. And I hate work.

So lets be joyful instead.

Rick Guidotti’s life has been all about beauty and the power of images. He spent years as a fashion photographer in Milan, Paris, and New York. But 15 years ago, while photographing a woman with Albinism, Guidotti was shocked by images in medical textbooks. Those medical pictures changed his life and ever since Guidotti has devoted his talent to the disabled. Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.

Interviewed for NBC’s Rock Center, photographer Rick Guidotti said: “It’s not about saying, “Compare Claudia Schiffer or Cindy Crawford to this girl. It’s about– it’s about reinterpreting beauty. It’s about having an opportunity to see beyond what you’re told and what we’re forced to believe that that’s beauty.”[Source-click for more photos]

I would also add that Guidotti’s photography goes beyond just pushing beauty’s boundaries. He shows the viewer that all life has worth. Bravo.

And now for more beautifully done artistic photos. This time showing ballet dancers in everyday situations. Warning: One of the photos does show a dancer in the shower. His manly bits are completely covered but he is totally nude. If nudity doesn’t offend you, than you can appreciate his sculpted physique. It’s the type of body you’d see cast in marble.
