Day Off is a photo essay project that was compiled by six photographers. This photo essay tells the story of women, mostly uneducated women from Bangladesh, who leave their poor circumstances at home to work as domestic workers in Singapore. They come here to search for a better life for them and their family. The photos tell stories of what they do on their day off from work, for some its not even a day off at all. They go out for karaoke, go to English or dance class, work in salons or go to Mosque.
