Drone Photography Reveals The Gulf Between Rich & Poor Around The World

Published in Design Inspiration on Aug 15, 2018 by Tim Marner™

Drone photography has become a recent fad, whether or not it’ll last remains to be seen.

However, it does offer a different perspective of the world and places which you walk past on a day to day basis. Nothing highlights this like the images from photographer by Johnny Miller, in a world where the gulf between rich and poor is getting bigger and bigger, aerial photography really gives a different insight to the problem and the discrepancies in how people live which are hard to see from the ground are shown in all their shameful glory.

Johnny Millers series “Unequal Scenes” is a worldwide showcase of rich on poor housing and inequality. The drone overcomes architectural, physical and natural barriers in major metropolises across different continents. You can view the full project here https://unequalscenes.com
