The One Hundred Homes project is a visual survey of India. It may be one of the first projects to combine the survey sampling methods used to measure and evaluate poverty, with the information-rich format enabled by high quality audio and video recordings, to provide a nuanced view of what it means to live at different levels of income in the country, and in vastly different circumstances. The project presents homes ranging from rich to poor, representing income levels across the country, and we hope that these data and images and videos can help discover the different ways in which we can understand inequality.
This project started as a maiden effort to better understand and capture on various visual media, the lives of the poor in the country. A representative sample of people was selected, and the teams went and spent time with these people to understand their living conditions and capture their everyday lives in the most true sense. These videos, images and data are available online at www.onehundredhomes.in, an interactive website with 360-degree videos, data visualizations, and photo galleries, that present a real-life representation of how people across the country lead their lives. The content features families that are representative of the income distribution across India, and the attempt aims to illustrate how people live lives.
The portraits presented here depict children living in a range of circumstances, from some of India’s poorest to those from high income homes. These images offer the viewer insight into life for the county’s next generation of adults. They also reveal the humanity and potential possessed by every child, wherever they fall on the economic scale. Also included are images of the local population.
