Photography exhibition and book launch

Apples for Sale by Rebecca Sampson

In collaboration with the Goethe Institut Cyprus

March 2018


Apples for Sale tells the story of Indonesian maids working in Hong Kong. It’s a book about migration, labour, and regional relationships. It’s about Indonesian maids working in Hong Kong, but for a real horror story you could replace Hong Kong with Jeddah or Kuwait City, and why not switch the Indonesian maids with Filipinas or Sri Lankans. While we’re at it, why not look at London, New York or Paris? It’s a book about the relationship between the rich and entitled and the not so rich and not so entitled.
