Miller started photographing above Cape Town, though is project has spread to Durban, Johannesburg and Alexandra. In his aerial shots, the viewer can see the disparity between neighboring areas, one a wealthier, gated, white community, the other a poorer, predominantly black urban township.
When Miller tried to access Cape Town's more affluent areas, he was stopped by security guards. "You have two or three meter high fences with electric fencing and often barbed wire, which is the norm for South Africa", he says. His drone shots allowed him to bypass security.
"This was a very objective aerial view" says Miller, adding that viewers can " stop thinking this is a white or black issue, or 'I'm looking at a poor or a rich person.' They are almost looking at a map or puzzle."
Miller says he's received a positive reaction to his images. "People want to engage with it because they don't feel so uncomfortable perhaps with [the] typical subjective imagery," he says.
Pictured are the neighboring areas of Masiphumelele and Lake Michelle. Although Masiphumelele was not set up during apartheid, it is a former township.
"Black people lived in these areas usually fenced off or somehow separated from other areas through buffer zones such as highways, green belts, train tracks or rivers," notes Miller.
The Papwa Swegolum golf course sits next to a densely populated township.
"Within these townships are dense poorly designed properties. In Masiphumelele for example there are 38,000 people that live in that area", says Miller.
The townships, notes Miller, are made up of quickly built shacks. "There is only one entrance and exit so it's always clogged with people and buses" he says of Masiphumelele. This makes a stark contrast to the well-planned neighborhood next door "which has a tenth of the people and very good transport links."
Overcrowding in the Masiphumelele has led to frequent shack fires displacing its inhabitants. The most recent left 4,000 people homeless.
According to Miller, Alexandra is an area people think of as the most unequal area in South Africa. "You have slum townships right next to the financial district of South Africa."
Hout Bay is the image that seems to resonate with South Africans the most, says Miller. "The red roofed houses are actually government houses. The tin shacks all around it are the informal settlements".
Miller initially photographed Table Mountain in Cape Town with a drone but realized the images he was looking at offered something special. "Someone said to me they had seen Table Mountain their entire life but they had never seen it the way I showed it to them," he says.
At first, locals did not take too kindly to the drone, says Miller. "There was one guy in Durban who threatened to shoot the dome with a pellet gun," he recalls.
Pictured: Alexandra, Sandton. When taking images, Miller maintained a height of 160 to 200 feet and moved as quickly as possible to ensure individual privacy. "No one likes a drone hovering in front of their house," he says.
