The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has declared Nigeria among the top eight countries with the highest human trafficking rates in the world. Photographer Elena Perlino has been working on this extremely important topic for many years, focusing mainly on the Italian connection since Italy has an extensive sex industry based on trafficking from Africa. Perlino's work attempts to show the complexities and contradictions of women's experience, documenting their daily life in Turin, Genoa, Rome, Naples and Palermo.
