After Taking These Pics, The Photog Gained Respect For Prostitutes. One Look And You’ll See Why [NSFW]

The world of sex workers isn't exactly glamourous. Movies and shows like Pretty Woman or Secret Diary of a Call Girl make the life of a prostitute quite lighthearted, which isn't really the case. Artist Malerie Marder shows the a different side of the story in Anatomy, a series of portraits of real sex workers  from Eastern Europe.

Again, these are not your standard Hollywood-hookers with fantastic bodies. These are real women who support themselves and their family through prostitution. Marder's portraits capture the strange situation of a sex worker, as the photo series objectifies yet empowers the female form, beautifying these women in an almost grotesque manner.

Check out the photos below.
