About Unequal Scenes

Unequal Scenes is a storytelling project of inequality around the world. It’s a project that started in South Africa, where I live, but has expanded to six different countries throughout the world - South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, India, Mexico, and the USA. In the last three years since I've started the project, it has grown into a global phenomenon. The photos (many of them taken with a drone) have been published in major magazines and newspapers (like National Geographic), used by NGOs and governments to help bring awareness on social issues, won awards, and helped to bring awareness around rampant economic inequality. 

This project has been grassroots from the start, and the next steps in the project are important for me to do right. Unequal Scenes is expanding into a platform for investigating unequal issues - not only social and cultural, but environmental as well. I want to continue to use drone technology, but also use traditional documentary photo and video to take portraits and record interviews, and tell stories. To do this I am building a platform (through my website and social media), a community (through my Fellowships and speaking opportunities), and encouraging co-creation (through my NGO africanDRONE). This means quite a lot of research, relationship building, trust, and travel.

I've discovered Patreon and hope that it will help to offset some of the expensive costs of running this project. Right now, I make money through a small fellowship stipend per month and selling prints of my work, which is hardly enough to cover the project's full sustainability. 

In return for your support, I will provide behind the scenes updates, release new images here first, and offer photo prints as thank you's to my patrons. When I'm in your town, I'm happy to host a meetup, a photo club, or offer any other advice or support you might need. Next up on my list to travel is: Brazil, India, USA, Philippines, Nigeria, China, and Mongolia. I am happy to hear your advice on where I should go next and who I should meet while I'm there!
