It's hard to image a more hostile working environment for a Western female photographer than a Pakistani brothel, and yet photographer Kate Orne has managed to make a series of compassionate even tender photographs in red light districts there. Powerful stuff.

Besides being simultaneously beautiful and terrible images, the text hits you over the head like a sledgehammer. Thanks for pointing this out. Yours is one of the few websites I read totally religiously and the one that provides the most brain and heart food.
