Falkland Road: Prostitutes of Bombay, by Mary Ellen Mark.

"The photographs...were shot between October 1978 and January 1979 on an impoverished street in Bombay that houses numerous brothels where cheap prostitutes work and live... Mary Ellen was drawn to Falkland Road because of the absence of pimps at the time that she worked there. It was a matriarchal society run by the madams; the only men we see in the photographs are customers."
