Giora Dan is a photographer and videographer who recently spent two weeks in Daulatdia, the Bangladesh town often referred to as the world's biggest brothel.

Daulatdia is believed to have a workforce of about 1600 prostitutes and Giora says the overwhelming majority of the women are victims of human trafficking.

He hopes his photos will shed a light on Daulatdia and human trafficking while raising money for a school attended by the children of the women in the town.

Giora talks to Jesse about his work and why it is so important to get stories like Daultatdia out in the open.
