Capturing Social Inequality in Drone Photographs

American Photographer Johnny Miller became interested in social inequality and segregation when he moved to Cape Town, in South Africa. The country has barely recovered from apartheid, which although officially ended a quarter of century ago, traces of the racial segregation in the form of roads, rivers, “buffer zones” of empty land, and other barriers still exist separating the rich from the poor, the blacks from the whites.

This gave birth to the photo series Unequal Scenes (previously on Amusing Planet) that portrays dramatic scenes of inequality around the world from a drone’s perspective.

1. Poverty drags down everything.

If countries had a multi-pronged approach to effective policies to get people out of poverty their whole society would benefit. The upfront cost to change so many lives is minuscule compared to the long term gains.
