"Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Moldova is one of the main trafficking source countries for women and children. It is estimated that between 200,000 and 400,000 women have been sold into prostitution abroad." "In Moldova, Dana Popa worked with the International Organization for Migration Shelters and Winlock International where she was given access to photograph and document the experiences of 17 women who had been trafficked." "In 2008 Autograph ABP commissioned Popa to return to Moldova where she began to collect the stories of the disappeared and photographed the families, the homes and in some cases the children who have been left behind." "Finally, she returned to the UK where she documented the spaces where trafficked women work as prostitutes in the brothels of Soho in London." "This book, not Natasha, represents the narrative of Popa's project through collected stories and images. Natasha is a nickname given to prostitutes with Eastern European looks."
