In Vancouver there is a street named Rupert. It runs like a vein North/South through East-East Van. It was an omen as a child, and a sign as an adult.

I took this one of Navid as he did a small meditation before a show. I then Messed with different printing styles. I think it's all chemical editing, not computer.
BAGOLY took this of me without my even knowing. It's from a disposable camera. "Obey the Session" he calls it.
