Readers of the New York Times have been sending in their photos of the credit crunch in a collaborative project labeled Picturing the Recession.

The online gallery creatively allows people to submit their own images in a win-win situation for the publication and its readers. Not only do readers feel they are contributing first-hand and receiving recognition for their photography, but the New York Times saves heavily on big bucks it would otherwise spend on professional photographers out in the field.

Images in the gallery are from category topics Business, Family, Home, Sacrifice, Transportation and Work. They include pictures from the New York Subway, Saudi Arabia, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Florida, Transylvania, London, Oregon, Stats for Crowdsourced News Photography Trending: Older & Mild
