Mexico City, 2013, Portrait of María Isabel, a resident at Casa Xochiquetzal, in her bedroom. The former sex worker, who grew up in Michoacán, ran away from home at the age of nine after a year in which her father “used her.” When she got to the Mexico City bus station, she met a woman selling tamales who offered her a home and education. María Isabel nearly finished her studies to become a teacher, but when her caretaker died, she became a sex worker (at the young age of 17). She now reads, writes poetry, embroiders and makes earrings and bracelets.
