Slums

Foreign Policy has a photo set up called Planet Slum. It’s composed of mostly interior, stitched panoramas depicting homes in some of the world’s poorest, urban places.

More of Jonas Bendiksen’s photography can be found at Magnum Photos. The feature on Dharavi fits the theme of the Foreign Policy set, but there’s other great photos…some of his Icelandic landscapes are breathtaking.

Bendiksen’s website is here and his book on the edges of the former Soviet Union looks amazing.
