Imagine all people in the World lived along one long street. And imagine all houses were sorted by income. The poorest to the left. The richest to the right. What would it look like, and where would you live?
Back in 2003 Anna got obsessed with the idea of making such systematic photo documentation of all common items from homes all over the world, to see what everyday life looks like, with different incomes. Her project launched in 2016 with more than 300 homes from 52 different countries documented. Anna was then invited to present it at TED in Vancouver in April 2017, and now you can watch her talk here. (Or scroll down to see how you can contribute to this unique free image bank, by adding more homes from more countries).
Even if we have 300+ families documented, we want more. Dollar Street is a one of a kind image bank of everyday life across the world. It uses photos as data to show what life looks like on all different income levels.
