Vladimir Ríos, shown above left, was featured in the August 2016 issue of A&U magazine, where he spoke of his collaboration with photographer Lester Blum, the documentary photography project Invisible, which shines a light on everyone who feels “invisible” in today’s society, whether it be caused by age, handicap or disability, mental illness, disease, weight issues, or lifestyle. The project was photographed and filmed as a documentary of the testimonies of the models. The project is currently exhibiting at the Pride Center of Staten Island/Staten Island LGBT Community Center, located in the Tompkinsville area of Staten Island, with an opening reception scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2016.
