Presentation by Ceiba :
"Julie’s photographs are divine because they are shot from her burning heart on fire by being there. She was in the thick of it. And with the bikers as one of them she shows us something real, not fabricated, about the human condition. What is. Not what is made up. [The book] is a reflection in full measure, of Julie’s personal convictions.
-- Donna Ferrato"

I hope you'll be happy with me just because of all this!".
