quote [I began this project in the fall of 2012, having read Denise Brennan's book, What’s Love Got to Do With It?, an ethnography of sex workers in a small resort town on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Built upon global inequity, Sosúa is paradoxically a place where women exert much agency and control over their lives. The stories Brennan tells of the women who move to Sosúa to pursue sex work – mostly internal migrants from Santo Domingo – paint a picture not of passive victims of circumstance but of women pragmatically carrying out plans to improve their lives and the lives of their children.
The first half of the series portrays the women at work, inhabiting their professional personas, projecting the promise of sex. Over time, they spoke with me about their lives outside work, how they arrived in Sosúa, their weekly routine of sending remittances home to support their children. As I got to know two of the women better, they gave me access to their everyday lives – their non-performance time – and I photographed them where they lived and out and about during their off-hours].

Me and You by london-based director Jack Tew is short film about a couple that was shot entirely from above.
quote [The clip offers a voyeuristic aerial view of a couple’s relationship, as it unfolds over the course of seven minutes. We can watch the young love blossom, from a movie date over the first time they have sex until the heartbreaking end. Seems like Jack Tew is pretty disillusioned with love. Though it's still very nicely done and probably happened like that many times around the world. You can watch a Making Of here].
