We’re not blind (arguably), it’s just that the saying, ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ aptly applies to our awareness of world differences. But people like Romain Philippon are making us look up and out of our bubbles to truly appreciate this devastating dichotomy we live in.
Ok, devastating might be a little harsh, but after events such as the earthquake in Haiti, it’s hard not to look at life with clearer eyes. Romain Philippon shows just how differently we live and how different we are. Yet we are also very, very similar. Take a look at some of Romain Philippon’s images above and visit Philippon's site for more.
