“Unequal Scenes” gives a bird’s eye view on the lines of inequality so clearly drawn in South Africa.


Never before has the division between rich and poor been so easy to grasp. Activists can thank South African artist Johnny Miller, who captured the following photos with a drone to illuminate the vast difference between living conditions among the classes.

The project, titled “Unequal Scenes,” began as a Facebook post that eventually went viral, reports PetaPixel. After the photo of the Masiphumelele community and its surroundings in the Republic of South Africa was shared more than 1,000 times, Miller knew he was on to something. He went on to capture many other, similar photographs and videos across South Africa.

“Discrepancies in how people live are sometimes hard to see from the ground. The beauty of being able to fly is to see things from a new perspective – to see things as they really are,” writes Miller. “Looking straight down from a height of several hundred meters, incredible scenes of inequality emerge.”


The crisp images clearly show physical divides between ultra-rich neighborhoods and downtrodden shacks. Sometimes the divides are wetlands, other times rich and poor are separated by an electric fence.

According to the artist, some of the communities were “designed with separation in mind,” while others grew “more or less organically.” The division is what remains of Apartheid policies which were enforced by law 22 years ago. Change may have taken place since then but in reality,

“many of these barriers, and the inequalities they have engendered, still exist.”



Following are some eye-opening photos from the collection:
