Divided cities/Unequal Spaces: South Africa’s apartheid legacy photographed by drone

ESPMI Network

3728 Sandton/Alexandra, Johannesburg

Johnny Miller used a drone to take aerial photographs of the gulf in living conditions for the poor and the wealthy in South Africa. ‘During apartheid, segregation of urban spaces was instituted as policy,’ he says. ‘Roads, rivers, buffer zones of empty land and other barriers were constructed to keep people separate. Twenty two years after the fall of apartheid many of these barriers, and the inequalities they have engendered, still exist. Often, communities of extreme wealth and privilege will exist just metres from shacks’
