This project will be shedding light into the underground sex industry taking place in our region. We are especially intrigued at the role that Chattanooga plays, as we are a trucking hub that heavily feeds into the demand (Interstates 24 and 75 intersecting in our town). Many individuals around Chattanooga are being exploited by the industry, and local documentation has been almost non-existent.
Amy will be shooting in large format film and will be producing many large scale pieces to be shown in and around the Chattanooga area. You can find Amy's work here.
