The Price of Sex

The Price of Sex
about this photo

The Global Reporting Centre recently received a donation from award-winning photojournalist Mimi Chakarova, which includes her entire photographic collection “The Price of Sex,” valued at more than $25,000.

Chakarova is Bulgarian-American and spent years documenting the global sex trade, and went undercover as a prostitute in Turkey to gain unprecedented access to the women and traffickers of Eastern European sex workers. In 2011 she produced the critically-acclaimed documentary film The Price of Sex.

Now that the GRC houses the photographic collection, we will shortly launch a series of exhibits, which will be an opportunity to explore issues around the global sex trade through public forums.
