Spanish photographer Miguel Candela portrayed women from Dhaka, Bangladesh, who work at one of many brothels in one of the worlds megacities. Prostitution under extreme circumstances is often their last (and only) resort to make a living. He portrays women in the heart of their existence, the brothel, with a close look, sometimes intimate, sometimes casual, always worth looking. While showing us the vicious circle the workers are spiraling in, Candela succeeds to maintain a personal level in his pictures allowing the portrayed to keep their individuality.
Taiwanese photographer Tou Chih-kang shoots dogs. While the photographer actually shoots pictures of dogs, the “shooting” unfortunately gets a sad double meaning quickly. The dogs that Tou captures are about to be put down, and he takes their very last, and often possibly only picture.
