    "The state of Nevada is known as a place for quick money, 24-hour marriages, and easy divorces. But it is also the only place in the United States with a legal sex industry. About 300 women today work in Nevada brothels, all regulated by the state government. Afforded little more than legal status, not much is known about the prostitutes or the environments in which they work. In Brothels of Nevada, photographer Timothy Hursley offers a view of this unknown side of America.

Far from risqué the images are poignant reminders of how little brothels differs from many American settings. Hursley photographs twenty-five houses, roughly the entire sex industry, in views from the mid-1980s to today..."
