A sixty-five year old prostitute who identifies herself as “La Abuelita,” or “The Grandmother,” poses for a portrait in a rented room where she has been living for the last 42 years on a street called in Spanish “La Linea,” or “The Strip,” where dozens of women work as prostitutes in Guatemala City. La Abuelita is said to be the oldest sex worker on The Strip, and due to severe back pain is now considering retirement and expects to survive on selling goods.
