Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
More Ohioans Living In Poverty
A U.S. Census report shows that a greater share of Ohioans are living in poverty than before the Great Recession.
The numbers show one in six Ohioans was living in poverty last year. The state’s poverty rate increased from 13.1 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2012.
During that six-year period covering the start of the recession and a supposed economic recovery, the median income for Ohio’s 4.6 million households fell by almost $4,800, after adjustment for inflation.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the 9.2-percent drop was the 10th-worst slide among the 50 states and the District of Columbia during the six-year period. The newspaper cited estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.
