In 2001, in the hill town of Sa Pa, Việt Nam, a Hmong baby and mother shop together in the outdoor market.

In 2005, Julie exhibited this intimate portrait among twenty-three photographs at Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Oregon, in a large two-person show titled Viet Nam & Cuba, with Niki Polyocan. This exhibit also resulted in the publication of “Sanctuary” in Willamette Weekly and, as a result, one of the best-attended opening night celebrations ever held at Newspace.

In 2011, “Sanctuary” was published in Newspace Center for Photography Exhibitions 2002-2011, by Newspace Center for Photography.
