The Places We Live

The Places We Live exhibits awe-inspiring photos of slums in combination with stories from the people who inhabit them. Well worth enduring the Flashtastic interface for.

In 2008, for the first time in history, more people will live in cities than in rural areas.

One-third of these urban dwellers—more than 1 billion people–live in slums.

The United Nations forecasts that the number of slum dwellers will double within the next 25 years. Urban slums are the world’s fastest-growing human habitat.
