Katy | Portraits | Amsterdam

Katy is a beautiful young American girl making a difference far away from home.  Instead of working in high end salons in San Diego or at an extreme sports summer camp she now lives and works in the heart of Amsterdam in the De Wallen or Red Light District.  Katy’s goal as an abolitionist is to help stop the trafficking of young woman into brothels and the sex trade in Amsterdam.  Trained in Cosmetology, she aims to establish a salon that can restore, train and provide a way out for the hundreds of girls that are trafficked from Europe to work abroad as sex slaves.
The sun was low, on a Sunday afternoon when my assistant and I met Katie in a quiet Amsterdam neighbourhood for a casual portrait shoot.
