Aselya at home in her work clothes. Age 36, Aselya started injecting heroin sixteen years ago right after she married and realized her husband started going off with other women; her neighbor introduced Aselya to heroin as a way of consolation. Aselya's husband left her and two years ago her parents departed to Russia together with Aselya's fifteen year old daughter. Aselya has been a female sex worker servicing clients on call for $15 an hour ever since her parents left with her daughter (image by Rena Effendi)
