Although prostitution in Morocco has been illegal since the s  it is widespread. In the Moroccan Health Ministry estimated there were 50, prostitutes in Morocco, the majority in the Marrakech area. Many children are vulnerable as adoption laws in Morocco are very rigid and difficult. Morocco's increasing reputation for attracting foreign pedophiles made it sign various international treaties to deal with the problem. Traditionally, women's roles in North African society have been rigidly defined, particularly so with increasing Islamification. Yet the economic and social realities often provide few alternatives to many Moroccan women, and the area has increasingly been seen as permissive to prostitution.

Prostitution, Marrakech is Moroccan capital of paid sex
The pair spent three and a half months of this year in the country, documenting the lives of sex workers to explore the complex nature of the choices Moroccan women face. They approached the project with the express intent to "dismantle preconceived notions of the prostitute as sexual deviant," an idea that Markova-Gold has explored in earlier projects on her own in the Bronx and Macedonia. Dohrmann had previously lived in Morocco, where she learned Moroccan Arabic and had begun writing about her interactions with female Moroccan sex workers. Their method is collaborative and unconventional, pairing Markova-Gold's impressionistic and occasionally inscrutable photographs with Dohrmann's narrative and very personal literary style. With time and space, the pair was able to cultivate deep and nuanced relationships with several women, resulting in a complex and holistic story. Working in a developing Islamic country during the Arab Spring allowed the pair to explore how other issues affected the subjects of their project, such as globalization, religion, politics and migration. A wide-ranging and challenging subject deserves such a patient and extensive approach, and the pair has recently begun to work with their material in earnest. Typically the work for the Lange-Taylor prize is not revealed until the project is finished, but Dohrmann and Markova-Gold agreed to share some of the ideas they are working on exclusively with LightBox. Markova-Gold shot primarily with film, but also used her iPhone to provide more instant feedback and evidence of the situations she was shooting. The photographs in the series above consist of iPhone photos, processed with the ShakeItPhoto app, which she found to be the closest approximation to her film work.

Amazing night with friends, music was great. What else can I say other than make sure you take lots Persuaded my boyfriend that we go here on our last night in Marrakech as I had read the reviews and quite fancied the idea of getting free drinks as they do ladies night. We arrived at and there was no one else there other than one prostitute, although we was expecting to see a few from reading the reviews. The prostitute then ordered a drink and got it for free and it was in a pink glass separate from the others. My boyfriend joked that maybe it was a glass just for the prostitutes, although as the club got busier we noticed every girl other than me get free drink after free drink in a pink glass. Made me feel a bit like a piece of meat but luckily I have a respectful boyfriend. Not a nightclub more like a brothel. We kept stumbling across

Whilst I was getting directions from the very helpful concierge, this receptionist rudely interrupted and started shouting in my face "what's the problem, what's the problem" and then walked away laughing loudly.
