Joe Henry, curator and artist said; “Ruvan is the official photographer for LCD and has the best collection of the band I have ever seen.

"His access and friendship with LCD is something rare in the commercialized and controlled music industry of today, and this close relationship can be seen in the rapport between photographer and subject.

“He shot the two covers for This is Happening and Bye Bye Bayou; His work is purely documentary style, living with the band in LA and NYC and documenting them in the studio, on the road and live."

Meryl Gilbert of SWG3 said, “LCD Soundsystem are a bold, brilliant and generation-defining band and we look forward to celebrating them with this fascinating collection of photographs and paintings.”
