Red Light District: Beautiful photos of Parisian prostitutes (1950s-1960s)

"Swedish-born photographer Christer Strömholm shot these absolutely stunning black and white photographs of Parisian prostitutes (some female, some transsexuals) in Pigalle, starting from the early-50s into the late-60s. I just can’t get over how beautiful all of these images are.

These photos, plus many more are in the book Amies De Place Blanche by Christer Strömholm."

Prostitutes always make me feel so sad...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I don't think that prostitution is a matter of joke seriously, it's just so sad.

Why?

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Some say that youth is wasted on the young. I disagree. I think that wisdom is wasted on the old. All you can do is give it away and the ones that need it want no part of it. Especially those you are closest to. Raymond Reddington

Some people use their brains to make money, others their muscles, others their labour, others their beauty, others their body.
It's sad when they do it out of desperation or if their forced to, if not... I don't see the problem

I love prostitutes!! I still think my best character on these boards was a prostitute.

I agree, I hate the idea of human trafficking and forced prostitution however MANY women and men become prostitutes voluntarily and find that it is a job that suits them for whatever stage in life they are at.

Since coming to NZ I can honestly say I believe prostitution should be completely legalised like it is here.
