The image showcases a collection of materials from the Visual AIDS archive. Prominently featured is a newspaper or magazine page displaying a shirtless man, with a headline mentioning an art show in Old San Juan by José Luis Cortes. Surrounding this are various other items: a booklet titled "The Perfect Man," another booklet with a portrait on the cover, and a black and white painting of a face. There is also a postcard titled "NOT OVER: 25 Years of Visual AIDS," an icon of the Virgin Mary, a grid of small photographs, and a piece of abstract artwork in black and white.
