The divide between the rich and the poor is the widest it has been in decades. And not just in India. This is one of the by-products of capitalism and it’s a global phenomenon. We might not realise it, but photographer and documentary filmmaker Johny Miller did.
And in his photos, he has tried to show us the stark differences between the rich and poor in various cities across the world.

This is what Dharavi looks like. And just in case you were wondering, those buildings, that’s the National Stock Exchange!
