An urban slum on the hillside barrio of El Valle in Caracas, Venezuela surrounds the affluent side of town, down on the valley floor. The dwellings seem to straddle each other. This twilight scene, contrasting the emptiness of the sky with the chaotic disorder of the slum, questions the triumph of urbanism within an electric landscape of poverty.

From 2005 to 2007, Jonas Bendiksen worked on The Places We Live, focusing on the growth of urban slums in India, Kenya, Indonesia and Venezuela. The Norwegian photographer has represented isolated communities as a constant part of his practice and has received many accolades for this work.
