Memory Lane: The Places We Live

[Editor’s Note: Occasionally, we will repost a previously published article on the blog.  Our community is growing quickly and that means this might be new to a lot of folks. This was originally posted on January 26, 2010.]

“The Places We Live Exhibition” is currently on display at The National Building Museum in Washington, DC. According to the website, it is Jonas Bendiksen’s multimedia documentation of life in slums all over the world.

The Places We Live is the companion website for the exhibition. It is a rich, vibrant (yet simple to use) multimedia presentation of Bendiksen’s work. The photography is stunning and the oral histories are moving. Click on the image below to access the web exhibit.

You start with an introduction, then you choose a city to explore. After an overview of that city, you can click into individual stories and use the 360 viewer to scan around the place.
