Tin Girls archiveIt is said that in Sindhupalchok, Nepal, you can tell which household has sold a daughter, or lost a mother by looking at the rooftops of the village. The ones with corrugated tin roofs as opposed to the traditional timber and slate indicate that a sacrifice has been made; a selfless act to try and better the family's situation. The unaffectionate nickname given to these women who give their lives is ?Tin Girls'. Documentary photographer Alice Carfrae travelled to Sindupalchowk in North-eastern Nepal, an area that is particularly heavily affected by trafficking. During her time in Sindupalchowk, Alice stayed with a number of families of survivors of trafficking. Whilst there she photographed and interviewed a number of women who were willing to share their stories. Sharing their stories is important to these women as they hope it will help not only to break the social stigma surrounding trafficking but also prevent it from happening to others. Coinciding with International Women's Day, Tin Girls is a mixed-media project featuring the photography of Alice Carfrae and the testimonies of the brave women whom she met in Nepal. All proceeds will be donated to Free the Slaves.
