Brothel comes housed in a special handmade clamshell box, which is covered with red silk from India. The photographs were created in Calcutta’s red light district. This is the photographic series that led to Briski’s Academy Award-winning documentary Born into Brothels, which features her work with the children of prostitutes.
Briski spent eight years in Calcutta, photographing the women of brothels and teaching their children photography.
