Thank you Feature Shoot and Sukruti Anah Staneley for writing this feature! Excerpt from FS:
"For her work Awhereness, Annie Ling, a Taipei-born photographer from New York, spent two months traveling through parts of Romania and Moldova to meet with the survivors of sex trafficking and listen to their stories. Using a medium format camera, Ling tries to eschew sensational images and instead approaches her subjects with a sense of quiet, acting as a listener. Through her project, she focuses on where trafficking happens and how people overcome this chapter in their life. Ling’s work traces the effect of such spaces on these women and how it shapes them."
Awhereness is currently on view as part of Take Ten, a group exhibition at ICP, from January 17 – March 15, 2015.
