ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital has partnered with photographer Rick Guidotti and his Positive Exposure program to bring an uplifting photo exhibition to the lobby of the Children’s Hospital. Beyond the Frame features 30 photos of the patients, families and staff there. The permanent exhibition focuses on the children, not their diagnoses, providing a unique perspective of children battling disease and disability. The photographer, Guidotti, is a former award-winning fashion photographer who has spent the past fifteen years working with individuals living with genetic, physical, cognitive and behavioral disabilities. The Positive Exposure program’s mission is to change public perceptions of individuals living with these differences. Rick took thousands of photo’s, candid and posed, and distilled them into the photos and captions on display.
