How Did I Get Here?

This new photography exhibition dedicated to documenting the exploitation of women in the prostitution industry. The series, entitled “How did I get Here?,” is meant to depict and problematize the adversity these women must overcome in their daily lives. The show's subjects work in Juarez, Mexico, though the majority are not from Juarez; instead, many were abducted into the sex trade while attempting to cross the border or sold into the industry by family members. Nearly all of the women are addicted to drugs - crack cocaine and heroin - and have neither healthcare nor access to rehabilitation. Those who cannot attract clients are deprived of food. Each of these remarkable women have a story to share with the viewer. The Artist will be supplying small stories about the women under each of the photographs.


All artist’s proceeds from the sale of these photographs will be donated to The Coalition Against Trafficking Women, an international organization dedicated to protecting human rights. Twenty-Two Gallery will unveil this important exhibition on Thursday, July 13, 2017. Show and sale continues through August 6, 2017.
