Photo Essay: Home Without a Home (Ontario, California)

These photographs were shot in film and capture a neighborhood in Ontario, California, that lays adjacent to the Ontario Airport. Driving through this neighborhood, the impact of the financial, and subprime mortgage crisis, is impossible to overlook. In 2008, this area was strewn with abandoned homes. Home, after home, that was partially torn down or boarded up. 

Four blocks away was a sprawling tent city for the homeless, many of which used to live in these homes.
