Aging sex worker Josna, 60, left, looks for a customer as her daughter Tanya, 7, sits by at brothel in Faridpur, Bangladesh.
Deserted by the man who fathered her daughter, she, like many her age, has a difficult time pulling in enough clients to support her family.
Growing old does not mean the end of one’s career, but it does mean working harder for a fraction of the pay a younger woman can expect. When Josna can’t buy food for Tanya, 7, she has to borrow from the neighbours.
