BARRIO BEACH by RICARDO MUÑIZ

Puerto Rican art photographer and puppeteer Ricardo Muñiz' work is focused on cultural recognition and pride: he dedicates himself to photographing and promoting models, designers, stylists and artists of color.  For his Ethan Says premiere, Barrio Beach, Ricardo received international support from some of our favorite companies.  Barrio Beach features the rugged apparel of Boiish in New York, the provocative swimwear of Vizeau from France, the trendsetting designs of French accessories company, Beryll, and from Australia, the ever-favorite, Aussiebum.

BARRIO BEACH by RICARDO MUÑIZ

New York has many famed beaches, but for many in the inner city, a sandy shore is not the only place to strut your stuff. For this editorial, models Kent Edwards (African American, white and Native American), Deilín Sanz (Dominican), Santiago Peralta (Argentine), Giovanni Perez (Colombian), Was Palacios (Dominican) and Michael Herrick (mixed race, courtesy of Empire Model Management) demonstrate their hotness against the cold, hard bricks, mortar and concrete of New York that Ricardo fondly calls, Barrio Beach.

Above left: Kent reigns on the stoop behind Ricardo’s building wearing only a Boiish red, striped muscle tee, $35, and Ace frames by Beryll, starting at $310.  Above right: Giovanni seduces in his Boiish red jersey pullover with hood, $45, and David frames by Beryll, starting at $310.
