I connected instantly when I saw this image from a series of Meneghinis work from El Salvador. Out of his series of prostitutes, Vilma is the only woman who has images of Christ hanging above her bed. I wonder what her clients think when they enter her room. The light, feeling, environment and subtle moment are extremely telling of Vilmas life.
A prostitute from El Salvador who identifies herself as Vilma poses for a portrait as she waits for clients in her rented room on a street called in Spanish "La Linea," or "The Strip," where dozens of women work as prostitutes in Guatemala City, Monday, April 23.
