urban survivors, into the slums

With the world population reaching seven billion, soon the question comes as to what effect that has on our living conditions. Rapid urbanization in the last fifteen years has been accompanied by an increase in slum settlements and according to UN-HABITAT, more than thirty percent of urban residents now live in poor-quality, overcrowded houses.

NOOR photographers Andrea Bruce, Pep Bonet, Alixandra Fazzina, Stanley Greene, Jon Lowenstein and Francesco Zizola, in association with Médecins Sans Frontières, give a view into the living conditions in urban settlements, showing what is at stake globally for the world’s urban population.
