Photographer Yvonne Brandwijk and journalist Stephanie Bakker travelled to five of the fastest-growing cities in the world, the up-and-coming cultural, creative, and economic hubs of tomorrow: Kinshasa, Lima, Yangon, Medellín, and Addis Ababa. This publication brings together five years of travel, insights on urban development, and encounters with the trendsetters, pioneers, and future talents who are transforming their cities. The personal stories of these people open an intimate and fascinating window onto the world behind the statistics of urban growth while also investigating what it takes to develop inclusive cities that offer space for individuals and personal development.
