Zana Briski: Brothel
Zana Briski... Brothel #8 (1998-2002, Gelatin silver print, 2007 print mounted to aluminum. Signed by artist on label on mount verso). From the exhibition Zana Briski: Brothel at Stephen Daiter Gallery in Chicago, IL. "...Brothel documents Briski's years spent photographing in Calcutta's red-light district. Living for months at a time alongside the women and children of the brothels, she quickly developed a relationship with many of the kids who, often terrorized and abused, were drawn to the rare human companionship she offered. These relationships led to her teaching the children photography, a story documented in her Academy Award-winning film Born into Brothels. More Works by Zana Briski at her personal site.
