Photographer Marc McAndrews spent five years photographing 33 of Nevada's brothels, which are featured in the book Nevada Rose: Inside the American Brothel. McAndrews says the project started with curiosity and evolved into an impressive body of work:
“I had all these preconceived ideas running around my head about what they were like and what went on inside a desert brothel … The women had final say if they wanted to sit for a portrait, and if they said ‘no’ that was that: no asking twice, no cajoling, no pressuring … I approached the brothels the same way I would any other project or assignment, and when I photographed the women (or owners or customers, for that matter), I didn’t want to demonize them for what they did, but I was also careful not to glorify them. I think the fact that I became and remain friends with many of the women that work or have worked in the houses speaks to the honesty of the project.”
