Johnny Miller’s drone photography ​gives you a bird’s-eye view of inequality

Johnny Miller’s drone photographs depicting South Africa’s economic inequality will be exhibited for the first time at the Gordon Institute of Business Science in Johannesburg from August 10 to September 10.

What started off as a Facebook post went viral for Miller, whose intention was to capture the stark differences between Cape Town’s Masiphumelele township and the neighbouring suburb of Lake Michelle — from the air.

In the nine months since the series of photos stunned the world, Miller has travelled around the country with his Inspire 1 drone to view from a different perspective what most South Africans have come to accept as “normal”.

“Drone photography is interesting because it affords people a new perspective on places they thought they knew,” says Miller. “The aim with this project is to provoke a dialogue that can begin to address the issues of inequality and disenfranchisement in a constructive and peaceful way.’’ — Mail & Guardian reporter

Opening is on Wednesday 10 August, 18h30 at GIBS, 26 Melville Avenue, Illovo. For more info and to RSVP for the opening, visit our Facebook page.
