These incredible aerial photographs show the clear contrast between the richest and poorest people across the world.

Bird’s-eye view pictures captured across the globe show the levels of inequality in close proximity, with the richest and poorest living side by side.

The photographs make up africanDRONE founder and photographer Johnny Miller’s ‘Unequal Scenes’ project.

Miller, who used DJI drones to take the images, has seen his project internationally recognised and awarded.

He moved to South Africa from America six years ago and said he found the inequality on display ‘impossible to ignore’.

Miller added that he believes ‘inequality is the defining challenge of this generation’.
