More on the project on this note"
Dana Popa's photographs and interviews explore the situation of women from Moldova who survived sex trafficking—or forced prostitution—and were able to return home. Her work examines how they managed to live with the traumas they had experienced in a world that knows nothing about their suffering, and how they lived in fear that a mother or husband might find out and throw them out.
