Untitled, From the series By the River

Photographer's Name: 
Ian Flanders

After three long years helping to build a bridge to freedom for a group of enslaved prostitutes, Ian Flanders had something a lot more valuable than a gritty photographic expose of the sex-slave industry in Cambodia. He nervously handed over photos and evidence such as hand written notes as seen in the portraits, to the NGO’s and hounded them for action. On November 12th 2014, the shacks were raided and eight women and three children were rescued.
