“Moldavia is a main source for Eastern European sex slaves. Dana Popa photographed a shelter there for women who had been freed from their ‘handlers’ and returned to their country. Popa wanted to record how these women live in secret with a ‘broken soul’: they cannot tell their mother or husband what happened to them, for fear of being thrown out on the street.” (source) Also see this page and listen to her talk about the work here.
