Habitat.

A selection of images from an ongoing project documenting the places that we live. As the world population grows our places of habitat are becoming progressively smaller. The gaps between them narrow up, the buildings even taller. In the search for employment and prosperity, people move away from rural areas towards cities that are hugely overpopulated, forcing the divisions of those habitats into even smaller spaces.
