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.

These were all even taken 22 years after the end of the 1947 policy Apartheid, a social policy or racial segregation involving political and economic and legal discrimination against people who are not Whites in South Africa created buffer zones — to create a distinct and modified separation through barriers, roads and rivers.

In his series, he hopes to encourage people to make the best use of their technology, to share stories that would strike people and help make a difference all over the world, especially now in this time of fast-paced spreading of information globally.

Miller’s aim, however, is not to start a war. He shows the scenes in the most objective way possible. He hopes to help in addressing the case in a constructive and peaceful manner.
