It highlighted the separation of the green landscapes and pleasing homes of a side and the dreary and deserted lands of the other just by a thin line. Miller said that the differences could not be easily seen from a person’s usual point-of-view and that is what he told is the beauty of being able to fly. He was able to show things from a new perspective through his clever photography.

The dramatic photographs showcase how inequality is, and still, very much present. He aims to disrupt complacency of the people of Cape Town.
