Photo Exhibit Captures Portraits of Migrant Workers

A new photo exhibit in Phnom Penh documents the stories of abuse faced by migrant workers abroad.

U.S. journalist Karen Emmons and photographer Steve McCurry spent 18 months interviewing and photographing 25 women from four countries in Asia, where they documented stories of abuse, child labor, forced labor, human trafficking, rape and starvation of workers.

The exhibit of photographs "No one should work this way" is on display at the Foreign Correspondents Club in Phnom Penh.
