Your life, in a minute

A roadside flower seller, a prep school student, and a male escort. These are among the people profiled by Miami Herald reporter Poh Si Teng in an absorbing project called 60 Seconds, which aims to give a glimpse of individual stories in minute-long video segments.

Teng writes on the site, “Living in Miami makes me sad sometimes. I have never seen a place where the ostentatiously rich and the dirt poor neighborhoods are so close in proximity.”

The project began as a way to raise awareness of that economic disparity. But now, says Teng, “it’s grown into something more universal. … This project has made me more positive about our collective future.”
