The Shocking Visual Disparity Between Rich And Poor

Photographer Johnny Miller is seeking to "[provide] a new perspective on an old problem" with his newest project, "Unequal Scenes." The South African artist used a drone to visually capture the huge problem of inequality in his country.

Rather than snap photos on the ground, he's chosen to use a drone for a specific reason. "The beauty of being able to fly is ... to see things as they really are. Looking straight down from a height of several hundred meters, incredible scenes of inequality emerge. Some communities have been expressly designed with separation in mind, and some have grown more or less organically," Miller explains.

Although apartheid legally ended over two decades ago, many of the barriers it established - physical and otherwise - still exist in South Africa. The inequality is especially apparent when "communities of extreme wealth and privilege exist just meters from squalid conditions and shack dwellings."
