The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has declared Nigeria

among the top eight countries with the highest human trafficking

rates in the world. Photographer Elena Perlino has been working on

this extremely important topic for many years, focusing mainly on the

Italian connection since Italy has an extensive sex industry based on

trafficking from Africa. Perlino's work attempts to show the

complexities and contradictions of women's experiences,

documenting their daily life in Turin, Genoa, Rome, Naples and

Palermo. By collecting stories of women from Benin City (Edo State)

- where around 80% of trafficked women come from - this reportage

bears witness to the multiple reasons behind women's forced or

voluntary migration. Elena Perlino has succeeded in telling a

breathtaking story with elegance; this book became thus a harsh yet

touching portrait of one of Europe's most horrific daily scenes.
