SummaryFrustrated with the fashion industry's narrow standard of beauty, photographer Rick Guidotti embarked on a mission to photograph subjects that fall outside that standard. This film examines Guidotti's efforts to change the way people conceive of beauty, focusing on his work with Sarah Kanney, a young American woman with Sturge-Weber syndrome, a genetic condition that marks the skin, and Jayne Waithera, a woman from Kenya with albinism.
