Living inside a brothel in Bangladesh

Despite the fact that prostitution in Bangladesh is quite legal, this does not mean that intimate workers live well. Kandapara is the country's oldest brothel, separated from the outside world by a large perimeter and walls. This brothel even has its own power plant, which turns it into a whole city of prostitutes.

Photojournalist Sandra Hawn visited Kandapar and captured life inside the brothel. Mainly girls from poor families work there. Many were born in the brothel itself and from birth had no rights and freedoms. A woman can leave a brothel only by paying all her debts. However, many of them choose to stay in the brothel to support themselves and their families.
