In very few countries is the social and economic divide between the rich and the poor as visible as it is in South Africa. Here, fences epitomise the barrier that exists in the country. With a fence between an illegal settlement of thousands of shacks and a luxurious golf course, for example, photographer Johnny Miller demonstrates the huge equality in the rainbow nation. The project, called ?Unequal Scenes', uses drones to obtain some fascinating aerial shots.

Even more than 20 years after the end of apartheid, South Africa still suffers from the continuing disparity that exists between social classes. Johnny Miller, from Cape Town in South Africa, hopes to provide a new perspective on an old problem and provoke a dialogue which can begin to address the issues of inequality and disenfranchisement in a constructive and peaceful way.
