    "Let us first define what we are looking at. When we are looking at the work of Joseph Rodriguez, these images are made in the tradition of what has been called humanist photography, in so far as voyeuristic curiosity. The work is also part of a longstanding and worldwide tradition of photographic prostitution. Some might see it as falling within the rubric of "documentary" photography, simply because it is produced in black-and-white and "documents" the lives of prostitutes (reductive as these explanations appear, there seems to be an almost cult-like adherence to such outmoded ideas). Of course the composition of Rodriguez's imagery and the visual integrity of his pictures are the products of a fine and experienced photographer. His are clearly very well-seen photographs..."
