Dollar Street - a revolutionary global tool that uses photos as data to understand how people really live. To do that we let photographers all over the world do documentations of homes. Every home is done in the same way. Then the material is tagged and uploaded to the Dollar Street database where it becomes comparable. The tool can be found here: [login to view URL]

Now we would like to add homes from Ethiopia to Dollar Street.
Your job will be to find another family who is willing to participate and do photoshoot and record videos of their home. Families of any income level will work, but if you can get one rich and one poorer, that would be great. You will also have to ask the family some questions in a questionnaire and take some short video clips of everyday activities. Doing one home takes between half a day to one day.
Payment: 500 USD per home.
Deadline for first home: 1 month from the date I hire you. If you can deliver earlier, that will be much appreciated!
Deadline for further homes: we can talk about that later, no rush ;)

Every photographer gets his/her own public profile page: [login to view URL]
All the photos and videos shared with us will belong to us, and we will make them freely available to the public through the Creative Commons License CC by 4.0 ([login to view URL]). So if you agree in being the photographer for this job, you automatically agree that Gapminder will own the rights to the photos, and that it will make all the material available to the public with this CC by 4.0 License.
(Please only apply if you're in Ethiopia or nearby. Right now we're not looking for families in any other country. Thanks!)
