6 Billion Others

Design is all about empathy and understanding people as real people. This project 6 Billion Others created by Yann Arthus-Bertrand tries to “draw a portrait of contemporary mankind by asking questions about universal values. What is happiness? What can we learn from life’s values?”

This project aims to reveal each persons individuality. The project team carried out 6,000 interviews in 65 countries and filmed 4,500 hours of interview footage. The results are truly captivating and unlike anything I have ever seen before.

The interviews are filmed beautifully and extremely intimate. I am finding them very addictive. You can watch people from all over the world talk openly and honestly about their dreams, hopes, regrets and fears.

Simply beautiful.
