Jonas Bendiksen

Norwegian photojournalist Jonas Bendiksen released his second book with Aperture this year titled The Places we Live. It's a very important body of work- both in terms of art and journalism. Bendiksen gets up close and intimate with slum dwellers in four cities across the globe; Mumbai, Jakarta, Nairobi, and Caracas. Their usually small and cramped dwellings are photographed 360ยบ in deep saturated color. Each home includes writing by the occupant/s about their lives. A must have for any serious collector of photography books... Magnum In Motion has a great multimedia presentation here.
