New 28 page 6x9 zine by Heron Preston. "HONORABLE PROFESSION" Showcases Herons fathers photography and time spent on the force serving for San Francisco Police Department. "As a officer it is deemed upon us to be lenient and have some compassion for the less fortunate in our society. But on the other hand, you have to drop the hammer, only because some people think kindness is a weakness in law enforcement. In conclusion, I do not condone excessive force, I.e. Shooting and killing unarmed civilians. We are their protectors" Barthlomew "Shaka" Johnson"

1. What differences do you see culturally in terms of love/sex/dating in Brazil vs the United States?
(Priscila): We both have different opinions because we come from different countries, Pablo is European and I am Brazilian. I think the Europeans are more caring and attentive compared to Brazilians. Relationship culture in Brazil deals with a lot of obsession and possession. Women in Brazil must always be submissive while also being the queen of everything. I found it interesting when he wanted a relationship with me despite the famous reputation that women in Brazil have all over the world hahaha.Read More
Nate Walton; Gasping For Air. 2016.

A delphian collection confounding the artist's other work, ( Out Of Body, Simple Future Past Perfect ) present a more shrouded view of intimacy, machinating the concepts surrounding the subject; Gasping For Air is a disclosing enumeration, a flashing importance while maintaining an impenetrable composure, blurring the line between reality and the concocted.

For many, many years MacArthur park has been plagued with urban blight, gangs, and drugs; but remains a cultural epicenter for street vendors, and people looking to score a hot deal, from clothing, electronics, food, household goods; at any given moment the whole atmosphere can change from a deal gone wrong to police showing up in force to remove everyone from the sidewalk to all out chaos, it's living its breathing it's as real as it gets all while being surrounded by one of the most beautiful parks in the city, littered with palm trees and a giant lake.
