#1 THe Brothel District
In Bangladesh, a Muslim country, pr*stitution is legal. It has a walled brothel district, where the women were trafficked, or born. Sandra Hoyn is a photojournalist who recently visited the Kandapara brothel in the Bangladeshi district of Tangali. There, she captured images that show what life inside the brothel walls is really like.
#2 The interview
She was interviewed by Cosmopolitan:
How did you find out about the Kandapara brothel?
I am interested in human relationships, in various factors of human life, [and] especially human existence on the edge of society. I read that Bangladesh is one of the few Muslim countries where pr*stitution is legal. The Kandapara brothel in the district of Tangail is the oldest and second-largest in the country — it has existed for some 200 years. I was curious about living in the brothel and [the women’s] situation in the society.
