Christopher Connell almost 2 years ago Hi! May I ask why this image is “for Raul Ruiz”? Of course I mourn his passing, but is there any special connection between Ruiz and this image? Daniel Kasman almost 2 years ago No particular reason, Christopher; it just felt right. I had the image laying around for a while, and its melancholy, expressionism, and oneric seclusion all struck me as strands connected to the cinema of Ruiz.
