Born Into Brothels is the powerful story of a photographer who became a teacher in the red-light district of Calcutta, India, and the extraordinary children she met. More than 7000 women and girls work as prostitutes in this district and only one group has a lower standing: their children. This book features the photographs taken by the children. Added to these images are short biographies of the children and the authors' commentary. This is a true collaborative triumph of self-expression and an extremely complicated, and often shocking, reality.
