Drone Photos Capture the Divide Between Rich and Poor in South Africa

Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller's photo series Unequal Scenes illustrates the dramatic gap between South Africa's rich and poor from the air. It shows the remnants of apartheid policies that were eliminated 22 years ago.

The video below shows Nomzamo/Lwandle township, bordered by the communities of Strand and Somerset West. It was conceived as an area to house “single male workers” during the apartheid years.. The hostel structures were built in 1960 to accommodate about 500 male migrants who mostly came from the former homelands in the Eastern Cape such as Transkei and Ciskei.
