Sex for Sale, a Photographic Narrative

Sex for Sale, a Photographic Narrative
#Exhibitions

Streets on the outskirts of town engulfed in fog, high-heels, mini-skirts and a staggering sense of solitude which binds with the tenderness of daily life, suspended between dreams and slavery. Seven prostitutes in the hinterlands of Milan offer, in over eighty photos, an account of their harsh reality, at times horrifying, made up of long nights, clients, bonfires and solitude. After having taken a photography workshop for three months, they tell their story through a series of photos which represent their own reality. This story is now ready to be told on display at the PAC, entitled RI-SCATTI. Per le Strade Mercenarie del Sesso. Organised in its sixth consecutive edition by Ri-Scatti, the volunteer organisation in Milan that, since 2014, has created projects dedicated to social issues using photography, the exhibition is curated by the curator of the PAC, Diego Sileo. The money raised through the sales of the photos will go to Lule, the non-profit that, for over twenty years, has offered support to victims of human trafficking for the sex trade, with programs created to enable social integration and rehabilitation.
