An Inside Look into 70's Biker Culture by Photographer/Biker Doug Barber (AKA Q-Ball)

These striking images exemplify the renegade alienation and freewheeling machismo that became trademarks of the 'biker' culture. Photographer Doug Barber's keen eye focused on his fellow riders while on the road with the modern-day cowboys. His book "Living the Life" is an insiders look into 70's biker culture.

"For years I have been encouraged to compile a book of these images....‘Living the Life’ is a personal view of a biker’s existence. ” –Doug Barber (AKA Q-Ball)
