Amsterdam Redlight District

This is a sketch from my visit to Amsterdam a few weeks ago to present at the International Academy of Law and Mental Health Congress. I spent a couple of nights wandering the redlight mesmerized by the social and gender dynamics and the activities and goings on. My last night there, I sat on a corner and sketched until 1am. I was told that photos were not allowed and that large men would come out of the red lit windows and destroy my camera if I took photos of the women so I refrained. However, I did learn among other things that the primary redlight activity occurs in 10-13minutes.
