Dollar Street is a unique project that takes an intimate look at how people from all over the world lead their daily lives. About 30,000 photos of 264 families from 50 different countries have been taken over the course of this project. Some people manage to survive on just $27 per month, while others earn more than $10,000. This contrast makes us think about life from a variety of unique perspectives and also helps us look at ordinary things differently.
Bright Side is eager to show you 7 families from the Dollar Street project.
