According to the case study, Marc McAndrew photography could have been presented with the following resources to enable him to carry out the research comprehensively.

Another resource is financial to cater for his trips from one brothel to another to gather a lot of information and get the analysis of the whole research on sex work from different areas (Forman, M. 2017). Also, the writing materials to take notes on information from the sex workers during the interview and this may help in clarification and also used as a reference for study in schools on immorality.

TOPIC: Prostitution in Nevada
My main client is a photographer by the name Marc McAndrew’s who was researching issues of prostitution in Nevada city. In his research, he used a camera to take photographs in Brothels where he was gathering the information on sex work (Forman, M. 2017). Also making trips from one state to another to explore the city. Also, the photographer used to rent rooms close to brothels with sex workers for five years. I decided to concur with this client since he took five years to research on prostitution hence had gained a lot of experience and on top of it the evidence in the form of photographs which he presented to me for clarification. Marc was able to gather all information about sex work researched into details and analyzed hence coming up with concrete details on prostitution. He explored more than one brothel to come up with comprehensive details.
In my case study, I encountered several themes which outlined as follows and which were incorporated Marc McAndrew’s research. The first one was the theme of poverty or financial constraints where most of the women will work as sex workers to earn money for their upkeep and survival. Lack of employment leads to desperation in life which trigger these women to engage in antisocial behavior such as prostitution for their upkeep or even to sustain their kinds. According to Marc, he says that this Brothel is owned by people and claim that it is a business like any other business despite being illegal and immoral in the society.
Another theme is about immorality. It is a negative behavior such as selling your body in exchange for money or enjoyment inform of prostitution. In many societies, sex work is regarded as immoral and antisocial behavior and is disregarded and prohibited. According to Marc some of the women are not desperate financially, but they do sex work as a form of enjoyment and satisfaction. He continued to say that most of the women who he met in the brothel were married or even had kinds but still involved themselves in immoral behavior.
Also, the theme of marriage is well outlined in the case study where referring to Marc in the process of his research he discovered most of this women were either married, had kids or husbands. Marriage is a companionship of two people, but most of this women practiced prostitution even in the marriage relation (Killermann, S. 2017) Most of this women leave their family and visit brothels in search of enjoyment or maybe financial gain. According to Marc most of this brothels are even carried out by married couples who assumed to be a business like any other.
In conclusion, prostitution is a projecting antisocial behavior in Nevada but still being carried out in some areas in the states. Women as the gender are the most affected people in the society. Themes of immorality, marriage, and poverty have well been elaborated in this case study by the researcher Marc McAndrew’s to further discuss issues of prostitution.
