What has the Great Recession done to us? Scrappers, a documentary in photographs with more than 50 stark and unsettling images from Dayton, Ohio, offers answers. It’s about the rise of urban armies of the poor devoted to a new economic boom in scrap metal. Scrap is among America’s top exports in an age of downward mobility, deep industrial decline, unchecked globalization and political drift. This book is a vision of what we are becoming as a nation and a glimpse of a grim future we still have a chance to avoid.
