While photographer Lisa Kereszi (born 1973) was researching for her previous book, "Joe's Junk Yard," her father, Joe Jr., gave her a worn and tattered old photo album that he had compiled in the 1970s and 80s. Inside were 4 x 6-inch color photographs taken by Joe Jr. of biker babes in bars, at bike rallies and drag races, in various states of undress. As Kereszi says, "It's really a very odd group of images for a daughter to find--pics of biker babes showing off their tattoos, their boyfriends' bikes and hot rods, and, well, breasts." Kereszi appropriated the photographs, and re-cropped them for this volume. "The edit goes through various different types of pictures," she notes, "from the expected, posed shots, to the 'money shots, ' then on to some very interesting and beautiful images of women unawares."
