Photojournalist Jonas Bendiksen spent six weeks living in and photographing the slums of Nairobi, Caracas, Mumbai, and Jakarta. Bendiksen’s photos of family homes portray a reality that clashes with popular perception. “I wanted to show who lives in these slums,” he says. “People think of them as mainly criminals and prostitutes.
