Ginny Dixon, a Pulitzer prize winning photographer, Susan Solman and Wendy Crawford were part of a team of six women who collaborated to create “Uncensored Life: Raw Beauty”, a photography exhibit of women with disabilities that was shown in Miami’s Wynwood Art District in 2006 to critical acclaim from Miami media.
As the founder of mobileWOMEN.org, an online magazine for women in wheelchairs, Wendy was inspired by the Miami exhibit and joined forces with Susan Solman and Ginny Dixon to create Raw Beauty NYC.
The exhibit made it's debut on September 20, 2014 at ACA Galleries in New York City. The funds raised from the launch went to support the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.
This impactful, empowering exhibit has received an overwhelming worldwide media response from publications such as Oprah Magazine, TODAY.com, ELLE.com, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan (.uk & .de), NY Daily News, to name a few. The exhibit continues to tour the country and encourages all those who view it to EMBRACE THEIR BEAUTY, OWN THEIR POWER and LIVE THEIR PASSION!
Raw Beauty NYC is an innovative visual arts project designed to celebrate the lives of women with disabilities, redefining beauty and unleashing potential for all women
This photography exhibit is a collaboration between photographers and women living with various types of disabilities that showcases their beauty, power and passion.
