Beautiful but troubling: photographs of the wealthiest one percent on our planet. The extravagant pleasures of the wealthiest one percent of the earth's population represent an extreme contrast to those of the remaining ninety-nine. Describing the gaping disparities in images is a challenge that has been taken up by Nina Berman, Peter Bialobrzeski, Guillaume Bonn, Mikhael Subotzky, and many others photographers. The volume assembles their works for the purpose of lending visual evidence to the blatant discrepancy between people's living conditions, which can be fascinating as well as shocking.
