ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΙ aka The attendants, ongoing study on prostitution and trafficking by Greek photographer Myrto Papadopoulos.
” The reason, which made me launch this study, was the immediate increase of porn films in Greece in 2009 at the beginning of the financial crisis.. Many people are involved in the sex industry, some by choice but others by force. Greece continues to be on the primary gateways for illegal immigrants to enter the European Union and is described as a key entry point for people smuggling networks. One report suggests up to 90% of victims trafficked into the European member states will end up in the sex industry..According to the Hellenic Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the rate of Aids in Greece has gone up 60 percent since 2010..”
