Fundacion Hispana de Osteoporosi y Enfermedades Metabolicas (FHOEMO)

“Osteoporosis: A Photographic Vision”- exhibition opens in three major Spanish cities

“Osteoporosis: A Photographic Vision”, is a dramatic three-part exhibition by famous Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani. It opens by exposing the burden of the disease with ten facts and moves to monumental three-metre tall photographs portraying 23 osteoporosis patients without clothes, both men and women of all ages, from 15 countries and ends with a “Video of Hope”. The exhibition presents a realistic and informative vision of osteoporosis. The heroes are the patients who kindly agreed to be photographed.

The exhibit was a great success in Spain where it appeared in three major cities:

September 2003 Sevilla, Museo de Carruajes,Real Club de Enganches de Andalucia

October 2003: Madrid, Palacio de Congresos

October 2003 : Barcelona, Fira de Barcelona, Pabellón Z-6

A press conference, hosted by both FHOEMO and the
patient society AECOS was also held in conjunction with the event.
