Joakim Eskildsen: American Realities

Text by Joakim Eskildsen, Natasha del Toro, Barbara Kiviat.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Joakim Eskildsen: American Realities</I>.In 2010, more Americans were living below the poverty line than at any time since 1959, when the US Census Bureau began collecting this data. In 2011, Kira Pollack, Director of Photography at Time, commissioned Joakim Eskildsen to photography this growing crisis affecting nearly 46.2 million Americans. Based on census data, Eskildsen, together with journalist Natasha del Toro, travelled to the places with the highest poverty rates in New York, California, Louisiana, South Dakota and Georgia over seven months to document the lives of those behind the statistics. The people Eskildsen has portrayed—those who struggle to make ends meet, who have lost their jobs or homes and often live in unhealthy conditions—usually remain invisible in a society to which the myth of the American Dream still remains strong. Many of Eskilden's subjects hold there is no such dream anymore—merely the American Reality.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Huck Magazine

American Realities, a new book from photographer Joakim Eskildsen, shows that poverty runs much deeper in American society than many of us might think.

The Guardian

Sarah Moroz

Time magazine photographer Joakim Eskildsen was commissioned to document life below the poverty line. What he discovered was shocking.

Slate

David Rosenberg

Joakim Eskildsen never considered himself to be an assignment photographer. That changed when Kira Pollack... asked him to work on a project about poverty in the United States.
