Planet Slum

In 2005, Norwegian photojournalist Jonas Bendiksen spent time living in slums in Nairobi, Caracas, Mumbai and Jakarta to document the conditions there. He said, “I got interested to break some of my own stereotypes of these places. What I really wanted to focus on was not the extremities, the worst poverty, or the worst slums, but on how people manage to construct daily lives in the midst of such challenges.” A slum in Caracas, Venezuela, is pictured above.
