“Over the last three years of visiting slums I’m simply awestruck by people’s capacity to create normalcy and dignity out of the most challenging circumstances.” –– Jonas Bendiksen

In 2008 more people live in cities than in rural areas. One third of city dwellers, more than a billion people, live in slums. In The Places We Live, Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen presents sixteen homes in four different slum areas: Caracas, Venezuela; Mumbai, India; Nairobi, Kenya; and Jakarta, Indonesia. This amazing website is a great eye-opener. Click on the profile pictures to enter peoples house and discover 360-deg images of homes and shanties from around the world. It’s pretty breathtaking!
