Dolly: A Graphic Journal on A Red-light District (Part 2)

On her first visit to the famed red-light district, illustrator Andri Nirmala got cold feet. The second of our biweekly graphic series.

by Andri Nirmala, Illustrator

In 2014 graphic designer Andri Nirmala conducted a research for her dissertation project at the red-light district Gang Dolly in Surabaya, East Java. The result was an illustrated book based on a series of articles by Tempo Magazine. Though brief, her research took her to meet various people whose lives depended on the sex industry that once thrived in the area.
