“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.
