Photography Exhibit

Check out the beautiful photography tracing the experiences of addict Mia at David Hogsholt's website. Mia:
is 26 years old. She is a drug addict and a prostitute. In a world of crack, heroin, short term relationships, and too many dark days, she is trying to lead a halfway decent life. Trying to be there for her family and for her friends when they need her. Trying to keep her addiction from killing her. Trying to live a life other people wouldn’t deem worthy.

Mia behind Copenhagen’s Grand Central Station. This is the area which holds the city’s red light district. It has been a tough year for Mia. She lost her boyfriend to an overdose, her own addiction got worse and she hardly ever saw her six year old daughter who is in foster care.
