The Places We Live is an incredible online photo-documentary authored by Jonas Bendiksen. From 2005 to 2007 this renowned Magnum photographer documented life in the slums of four different cities: Nairobi (Kenya), Mumbai (India), Jakarta (Indonesia) and Caracas (Venezuela). His images capture not only the dire reality of these massive urban settlements but also the personal histories of their inhabitants, as they cope with the difficult challenges that are presented to them on a daily basis regarding lack of health care, sanitation and electricity.
