"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."

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

Nice photos :)

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 :p

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.
