I collect pictures of the sex industry (see the whole collection here). I favour images that don’t show graphic sex or the showy side but tend to illuminate everyday scenes, including streets, buildings, passers-by, interiors, workplaces, details, outfits, signs, workers, customers. It’s not an encyclopedia project because most of the pictures come to me with little identifying information, so if you know more, let me know. The shot above is said to show Dolly in Times Square.
