Portrait 007

This is the melancholic face of Maya (20) who was forced to join the prostitution after being tortured brutally. Many young girls like Maya come to Chittagong for a promised better job and finally delivered to sex trade agents who typically beat, rape or terrorize them to join the trade.

The scars in her chin have a different story. She looks pretty and thats why she 'was' in great demand of the customers. She earned better than other sex workers. One day, some of them caught her in a desolate place and cut her chin with razor blade.

Maya told me the the story.

    Horrible story! It's so awful that things like that happen. Blame to the customers who are in fact responsible for this. No demands, no sex trade...
    Very good portrait and documentation.
