In 2010, more Ame­ri­cans lived below the pover­ty line than at any time sin­ce 1959, when the U.S. Cen­sus Bureau began collec­ting this data. In 2011, Kira Pollack, Direc­tor of Pho­to­gra­phy at TIME, com­mis­sio­ned pho­to­gra­pher Joa­kim Eskild­sen to cap­tu­re the gro­wing cri­sis, affec­ting near­ly 46.2 mil­li­on Americans.

Based on cen­sus data, the pla­ces with the hig­hest pover­ty rates were cho­sen when Eskild­sen, toge­ther with jour­na­list Nata­sha del Toro, tra­v­eled to New York, Cali­for­nia, Loui­sia­na, South Dako­ta and Geor­gia over seven mon­ths to docu­ment the lives of the peop­le behind the statistics.

The peop­le Joa­kim Eskild­sen has por­tray­ed-peop­le who strugg­le to make ends meet, who have lost their jobs or homes and often live in unhe­alt­hy con­di­ti­ons-usual­ly remain invi­si­ble in the Ame­ri­can socie­ty to which the myth of the Ame­ri­can Dream is still very strong. Many of the peop­le held the­re was no such dream any­mo­re-merely the Ame­ri­can Reality.
