The creativity of Vladimir Rios along with the photography of Lester Blum has been endeavoring to raise awareness on issues of social relevance first with their photography narratives, Warrior of Hope and I Still Remember both of which focused on HIV/AIDS from different points of view, and now with their new exhibition Invisible, which has previously been presented to the public in New York.
Presented by The Hub, at the LGBT Visitor Center, Invisible has been designed and curated as an educational piece to give a voice to those who have previously been unseen or unheard. The focus is on individuals who either feel / felt invisible or believe that society treats them as invisible because of physical or mental disabilities, disease (HIV/AIDS), age, weight issues, gender, sexuality, bullying, physical or mental abuse, depression, and suicide. Through portraits and written testimonials of the participants as well as a video documentary you will discover autobiographical statements of why some individuals feel invisible and how some individuals have responded to the needs of those who are or feel invisible. There are many social issues facing today’s society. In order for the public to address these issues, photographer Lester Blum and Vladimir Rios have truly created an interactive exhibition to raise consciousness and hope.
