A couple of years ago, french photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand amazed us with a breathtaking perspective on ourselves: THE EARTH FROM ABOVE is a series of aerial photographs that reveal the stunning beauty of our planet.

Now Yann is back. And he has landed his helicopter. To meet the people that inhabit the landscapes he’s been portraying all those years.

In his long-term project 6 BILLION OTHERS, 6 directors set off across the world to interview 6.000 people from 65 countries. They filmed 4.500 hours of interviews. And compressed them into 450 hours of translated and subtitled video portraits.

Well-lit and tightly framed, the short interviews are intimate, emotional close-ups of the people that populate our planet.

The interactive website was created by the french design company THE BLAST MACHINE.
