The Market Photo Workshop cordially invites you to the opening on Thursday the 17th March 2011 at 17h30 at The Photographer’s Gallery at The Market Theatre. The exhibition will run until the 21st April 2011.
Working the City is a culmination of a participatory photography project which worked with migrant women involved in sex work in the inner city of Johannesburg. The project, which ran for ten days in 2010, worked in collaboration with ongoing research that is being undertaken with women involved in sex-work in inner-city Johannesburg. It is hoped that the images selected with the participants and displayed, and the accompanying narratives, will contribute to an increasing body of knowledge relating to the experiences of migrant women involved in sex work and how they (re)present themselves, perceive and experience the city.
