Print series

The wealthiest nations of the world with the highest standard of living tend to be those at the northern extreme of areas open to human habitation, Canada, and the Nordic Countries. Southern Europe has long been poorer than its northern counterpart, as has the Southern United States than the northeast counterpart. Spain and Mexico are two other great examples of this phenomenon. The North–South divide is broadly considered a socio-economic and political divide. This series of six prints visualize data to display the discrepancies between north and south on six different matters and various scales such as global, continental and national.
