_____________________________________________________Il suo progetto, #Human_Negotiations non è una mera descrizione giornalistica del commercio del sesso, ma un’ interpretazione personale. Lasciando da parte gli stereotipi di sfruttatori, oppressi , donne costrette forzatamente ad una professione in cui esse sono vittime passive, il progetto rivela un mondo più sfumato, con un tempo indeterminato dove donne prendono il centro della scena e dove la complessità del mondo reale lascia spazio ad interpretazioni più ampie…”il suo lavoro non fornisce risposte ma fornisce un punto dove far cominciare una riflessione”

Bangkok, 2007-2011 :.synopsis : Human Negotiations is an independent, self-funded collaboration between photographer Katharina Hesse and writer Lara Day, exploring the lives of a community of Bangkok sex workers through both images and text..The project came into being in 2007, when Hesse and Day met during a photography workshop. Over the course of three years, the pair returned to Bangkok's red-light districts repeatedly to interview and photograph more than two dozen women..Human Negotiations is not a journalistic account of the sex trade, but instead a personal interpretation of a line of work that is frequently misunderstood. Leaving aside stereotypes of exploited, downtrodden Third World females coerced into a profession in which they are passive victims, the project reveals a more nuanced, open-ended world where women take center stage, and where reality's complexities leave room for wider interpretations..Documentary photographs and fictional vignettes based on personal interviews focus on subjects who have not been coerced into their jobs, but who choose to work in the sex industry as a means towards a better life: a mother supporting a child, a ladyboy saving up for cosmetic surgery, a girl from the countryside looking to strike it rich in the big city, a woman living the lifestyle to enable her own freedom and independence..... ."What Hesse and Day present in Human Negotiations, is a unique and highly personal look at a facet of the sex industry rarely documented before, challenging the perception of women and sex. It is both emotionally powerful and poignant, with its visual rhythm reflecting the lives the women live and the city which forms the backdrop to this story. But it does not seek to answer all the questions raised, instead Hesse and Day present a stepping off point from which a larger dialogue may begin. "  ( Wayne Ford)
