Over the course of six years, Malerie Marder photographed prostitutes in the Netherlands. During that time, she meditated on the thin separation between the two sides of her camera - that sliver of fortune that separated her from the world of the women she photographed. The photographs that resulted, don't raise awareness or work as documents, rather they toggle between reality and a mythical space that allows for momentary escape.
