This month marks four years since the Vancouver Canucks lost game seven of the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup finals, an occasion that triggered mass-riots in the city. Amidst the post-apocalyptic looking scene, photographer Rich Lam saw a couple kissing in the middle of the street, and the image he captured went viral. Though the photo was shared around the world, the identities of the couple remained a mystery for a few days before.
