Ribbons have long been symbols of awareness and support. Emilio Apontesierra-Paretti’s manipulated photographs are a metaphorical ribbon to remind us of the ever-present risk of contracting HIV. As a community educator, the artist uses these high contrast black and white images with a touch of red to remind us of the presence of the virus in our world. Emilio pairs each image with a brief, positive statement reminding those who have the disease to take care of themselves and others to always prioritize protection.
