Whores' Glory

Michael Glawogger
In Thailand, women wait for clients behind glass panes, staring at reflections of themselves. in Bangladesh, men go to a ghetto of love to satisfy their unfulfilled desires on indentured girls. And in Mexico, women pray to a female death to avoid facing their own reality. In worlds where the most intimate act has become a paid commodity, these women have received money for it - but it has not made their lives rich in anything but stories.
