{WHORE}TOGRAPHY: photography + sex work

I came across something interesting - - a magazine, online platform, and movement through which sex workers can share their stories around power, art, and the politics of sex work.

How does photography shape our understanding of sex work? How is photography instrumental in the prohibitionist war against sex work?

The first issue was released earlier this month and features found images of, or taken by, sex workers. It reveals an alternative history of sex work and gives contemporary sex workers a platform to tell their own stories.

The author of the {WHORE}TOGRAPHY project is Camille Melissa - a photographer, an academic and a sex worker.
