Ned Levine is an urban researcher who lives in Houston, Texas, with more than 50 years in academia and professional practice. Research interests include housing development, particularly in developing countries, and human adaption to these environments. These photographic collections of urban environments were taken between 1968 and 1989 in six different developing countries: Turkey, Trinidad, Tahiti, Singapore, Jamaica, and Egypt. The aim was to show the diversity of housing, both in terms of ‘formal’ housing development as well as the informal development that frequently occurs in many countries. A final aim was to show the people who inhabit these places; housing by itself means little without considering the people who live in it. (more)
