Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a joint disorder characterized by swelling.  A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet. Joints are found in the knees, hips, fingers and other areas of the body that bend to ease movement. There are many types of arthritis, one of which is called osteoarthritis.

Olivieri Toscani, Italian photographer, speaking about his photographic exhibition "Osteoporosis: A Photographic Vision"

By photographing people in black and white, without the camouflage of clothing or props, viewers can better understand the true nature of osteoporosis. I believe knowledge is the basis of osteoporosis education. The people in this exhibition have shown a large amount of generosity by revealing their physical situation in this way. Through the visual effect of the exhibition they will help other people to find out if they are also exposed to the risk.

Ursula Andress, actress and former 'Bond Girl'

I knew very little about osteoporosis before I was diagnosed. When I found out I was shocked and refused to believe it! As far as I was concerned, osteoporosis was not for someone like me, a former Bond girl who travelled, swam, walked miles every day...I feel lucky that with the help of my doctor I can still be me, living life and doing activities that I want and expect to be able to do.
