A story that haunts me.

March 11, 2023

I’ve never shown these pictures from 2009. I found these women styling hair and sewing above the Khujand Market in Tajikistan.

Each group was working in a small room.

I photographed as I walked the long corridor.

In the middle of this corridor is a lounge with two men sitting. This is where the staircase descends into the multi-leveled bazaar.

As I turned to go downstairs, one man called out, “If you see a girl you like, tell us which one and come back tonight.” I did not know if that was a joke or not. I just kept going down the stairs.
