Photographer snaps beauty outside 'the norm'

A fashion photographer who's worked with supermodels is now revealing the beauty in people with visible genetic conditions.

Too often, he says, people turn away from them, and he wants to change that.

People with conditions such as albinism don't often think of themselves as beautiful. But photographer Rick Guidotti does.

"The first kid I photographed walked into my studio so beautiful, Christina's her name. She was just stunning, but literally walked in [with hunched shoulders].

"I lifted up my mirror and held it to her face and I said, 'Christina, look at yourself. You're magnificent.' She exploded with a smile that I swear lit up New York City that day."
