About the Author

Jane Hilton is both a filmmaker and a photographer, she lives in London. She studied classical music and graduated with honors in 1984 from Lancaster University in Music and Visual Art. Her love of photography took her to London, where she worked as an assistant for numerous fashion and advertising photographers, before going it alone in 1988. Early work included both fashion and editorial projects alongside her documentary work, which is the mainstay and passion of her work today.

The contradictions in American society and the American dream is a recurring theme. Her work in Las Vegas, where the line between fantasy and reality is constantly blurred, is an epitome of this. From proclamations of everlasting happiness in Vegas, Jane hit the empty desert roads of Nevada, ending up 350 miles away near Reno, where a roadside brothel called 'Madame Kitty's Cathouse' caught her eye. This chance encounter became a two-year project and resulted in a ten-part documentary series for the BBC, The Brothel/Love For Sale. as well as a series of exhibitions on desert landscapes, pimps and prostitutes.

Jane's work is regularly published in The SundayTimes Magazine and The Telegraph Magazine, both published in London.
