All images by Peter Brian Schafer. Used with permission. Photographer Peter Brian Schafer was born, raised, and went to college in northern California. Like everyone else, he currently lives in Brooklyn. Peter: My father had an old Yashica 35mm SLR and we would sit around and watch slide shows of family vacations and earlier photos he took in Japan before I was born. Typical stuff for a kid born in the 60s. He was quite a good photographer. When I went to college I took photography classes and learned to develop and print. In college I got very into movies, foreign movies and old Hollywood pictures.

My approach to photography is largely inspired by movies, both in look and my interest in narratives. Peter: I guess it grew out of the practice I got doing street photography and then, imagining stories of the lives of people I shot.

Peter: I was at this point in where I wanted to do an extended project. But by the time I got my life together to do it, it was November and I decided to find somewhere warmer. I thought of the Dominican Republic because Dominican republic prostitutes pictures saw somewhere that flights were cheap, then I went online to learn more about it and saw these references to prostitution and sex tourism. That sounded like a project. It was interesting because the stories went against the prevalent view of prostitutes living these desperate degraded lives. All the other businesses depend on them, so they have this surprising status.

Peter: I used a Mamiya 6 rangefinder with its wide angle 50mm lens. It was a good camera for this project because I was mostly shooting interiors and the lens gave me the coverage I needed. I always want to shoot film. Peter: I became their client. That provided me access to their time and a world I wanted to show. I explained I was working on a photo project and showed them some of my other work on my phone.

I paid them for their time being photographed, as I would pay a model in New York. This part of the project, the first half of the series, was approached more as modeling and portraiture than reportage.

As I got to know two of the women better, and we developed a level of trust, they gave me access to their everyday lives — their non-performance time — and I photographed them where they lived and out and about with their friends during their off-hours. They understood what I was aiming for, that I was not judging them but wanted to gain an understanding that comes only from spending time together. It took a while for one in particular to stop posing every time I took my camera out, but after a while I finally achieved that sought after state for documentary photographers of being completely ignored.

Toward the end of the project, instead of hanging out at the brothel, we started hanging out at her apartment. When she went to St. Maarten on a work contract, I met her there.

When she went to Curacao on another work contract, I met her there. In between visits, we chat every day on WhatsApp. Peter: The project got a lot of exposure through Medium — a big part of that initially was getting a mention on BoingBoing. And I work at getting additional exposure. Sex work is a very contentious issue. There are regularly stories online about it being possibly decriminalized or cracked down on in one country or another and I regularly link to the Medium story in comments. My goal is to show people this other side of the lives of sex workers because most people only know sex work from sensationalizing stories on television or in the media that only reinforce the stigma against sex workers.

The thing is sex workers are very much ordinary people, trying to get by and support their families in less than ideal circumstances, like most of us. And my coming out as a client is trying to meet that stigma head on, as well. He also likes pizza. Is the Definition of Street Photography Changing? Next Post.
