Meet Johnny Miller, the man using drone photography to change peoples' views
Johnny Miller is known for using his camera to highlight social inequality around the world.
He's a multimedia activist, storyteller and a drone photographer.
Earlier this year, his pictures graced the cover of Time Magazine showing the stark difference between South Africa's rich and poor.
The Cape Town-based photographer's powerful photo series titled Unequal Scenes is what put his work into the spotlight.
In it, he captures a bird’s-eye view of inequality in places such as Joburg, Cape Town, Baltimore, Mumbai, Mexico City, Nairobi and more.
The series began when Miller bought his first drone back in 2016 and shot aerial images showing the juxtaposition of Lake Michelle and Masiphumelele in the Mother City.
Miller says his passion is imaging with a social conscience.
