Exhibition : Not Natasha at Photofusion gallery in London

I spoke already in my blog about the Dana Popa's project Not Natasha,
it is a great documentation on Moldovian women who are victims of
human trafficking, the project from Young romanian photographer has
received many awards and grants and displayed in many galleries.
Currently is at the Photofusion gallery in London which I suggest to
visit, here a statement from the curator of the exhibition Natasha
'Behind the fancy facades of the cosmopolitan capitals of Europe,
hundreds of rooms become exile spaces for myriads of bodies
objectified for male fantasy. While most of them are squalid and cold,
many others appear familiar and warm. Mirrors, red lights, posters,
the list of services on the bedside – all these little attempts at
humanising these rooms, at imbuing them with a kind of homeliness,
speak for the girls' need to survive.'
