From the companion book to documentary Whores' Glory by Michael Glawogger. "In northern Mexico, La Zona is a decaying motel where women catwalk among doorways, sharply silhouetted, vying to catch the eyes of men cruising by in the dark. Glawogger has described brothels as "ghettos of desire," but, as his film makes clear, they are also shadowlands where ancient dramas of love, lust, beauty, and despair are enacted night after night."
Jane Hilton "...For the last fifteen years I have spent a lot of time getting to know the working girls from the legal houses in Nevada, producing ten documentary films and an exhibition. I know there are some incredible women hidden in these brothels and I wanted to show this. So I decided to go back again to make a series of intimate portraits in eleven different brothels across Nevada." 2/2
