Vulnerable families in Milan, Italy, have become victims of extensive eviction in the city. A cut in government housing subsidies in 2012, combined with widespread unemployment and a high cost of living have contributed to the more than 67,790 evictions last year and estimated 300,000 more families at risk in 2013. A photojournalist followed several families through their unique eviction journeys, from their homes to the streets, foster homes or hotels. Often, illegal immigrants are particularly suseptible to evictions, as landlords raise their rents because they know that they are unable to report them to authorities.
