This is a quote from the article, and then I'll put the link below:
But if unemployment is less obvious and inflation is not yet an issue, there is one aspect of the Great Recession that has nevertheless caught the photographerÃ¯Â¿Â½s eye: foreclosures. And while it remains to be seen if it achieves the social and artistic impact of the Depression-era work, foreclosure photography has already helped define an era that will mark American society for decades to come.
Ok, that was in 2010, and several such articles appeared in their series about the way we live. Interested? I missed this one, but am reading it now.
....The series itself had an intro statement which explains its appropriateness for this forum:
A house is more than just a shelter from the storm. How we shape our homes, and how we behave within them, speak volumes about our history, our values and our way of life. Living Rooms explores the past, present and future of domestic life, with contributions from artists, journalists, design experts and historians. .......
Worth reading, don't you think?
