Unequal Scenes

“Discrepancies in how people live are sometimes hard to see from the ground,” photographer Johnny Miller writes online. “The beauty of being able to fly is to see things from a new perspective — to see things as they really are.” He has captured a stark view of the urban economic segregation in South Africa through his Unequal Scenes project.

Johnny Miller has used drone technology to take an aerial view of the divide in standards of living between the poor and the wealthy. His work highlights how the manicured suburbs of the middle classes sit only several hundred metres away from the ramshackle shanty towns of the poorest members of society. An example include a God's-eye view of the picturesque suburbs looking out onto the glistening waters of Lake Michelle, 20km from Cape Town?s city centre. Separated by wetlands, a guard house and an electrified fence, the 38,000 inhabitants of the neighbouring tin shacks of Masiphumelele are a world away.
