“Bought & Sold” is a powerful photographic art exhibition on human trafficking by award winning photographer Kay Chernush. It is organised by Singapore-based anti-trafficking organisation EmancipAsia, together with ArtWorks for Freedom Singapore, to raise awareness of forced labour and sexual exploitation in Asia Pacific. By drawing on personal experiences from human trafficking victims, Chernush put together a well thought, beautiful ensemble of photographic artwork, each accompanied by impactful messages from those who had lived through the ordeal of human trafficking.










Chernush is a leading US photographer with more than 25 years’ experience in commercial and fine art image-making. Her work has been commissioned by organisations such as ‘Free the Slaves’ and the ‘International Cocoa Initiative’, and has also appeared in over 50 feature stories with the Smithsonian magazine. Her fine art work is included in the permanent collections of the World Bank and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.


EmancipAsia is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organisation led by Singaporean founder Ms Sylvia Lee to help combat human trafficking in Singapore and the Asia Pacific.
