The Central Euopean regime changes of 1989 have not only brought about new happy customers in flourishing market economies. The breakdown of traditional industries and the abrupt introduction of capitalist competition on all levels of society led to a sharp rise in unemployment and to social and economic impoverishment of a significant part of the population in post socialist countries. Unimployed fathers, divorced women and families with more than two children suddenly find themselves in the poverty trap, at the fringe of society. Polish OSTPHOTO photographer Mariusz Forecki witnessed a striking phenomenon in and around his home town of Poznan: People cannot any longer afford their city flats and move into the traditional allotments outside the town. Gardens turn into permanent housing.
