Photographer shows Cape Town's inequality on the ground with aerial shots
Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller has put the Mothery City's deepening socio-economic divide back into focus with his powerful photo series called Unequal Scenes.
The aerial view photographs show the juxtaposition of livelihoods of different classes in the Western Cape.

Miller says people have commended him for framing inequality in a new light.
I think that's what is so powerful about aerial photography. 99.9% of the time, you see things from the ground. And when you raise above whatever your'e looking at, you get this totally new perspective on it.Johnny Miller, Cape Town-based photographer
Using a drone camera, Miller uses still images and video blogs to depict a bird's-eye view of a tough reality.
He says he plans to further document the contrasting lives of communities on both sides of the divide.
