hidden slaves, story of tanja

In 2011 I photographed this story of Tanja from Bangladesh. She is a domestic house worker, like many young girls in Bangladesh, Benin, Guatamala, Haiti and many more countries. They are the most hidden slavery because everything happens indoors in private houses and the problem is most of the time not recognized by government or there is no clear law that can protect these children.
