Internal Notebook (*signed*)

@ Hasegawa, Miki



Presentation by Ceiba:

" « The structure of the dummy reveals an eclectic use of notebook style and a very thorough research. The dummy deals with the emotional cries of children raised in abusive homes. The jury was impressed by the way Miki Hasegawa approached this extremely difficult subject matter. A book not easy to digest but nonetheless very significant. We found it remarkable how she tells the stories in such a respectful, delicate way. »

  • 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...

Their sense of self worth and identity has primarily been defined by external forces. What happens when an African American man self interprets his own identity based upon ideology,...
