Photographer Justin Sullivan presents yet another array of photographs depicting the fallout from last year's economic downturn. Take a peak at this utterly abandoned community on the edge of Serenity Drive in the town of Rio Vista, California.

This stark landscape is all that remains in the wake of the recession. The land is still available for development, but until then, this community in Rio Vista will remain a symbol of suburban sacrifice.

Implications - With the amount of concrete curbs and medians surrounding the residences in this suburban neighborhood, there really is no place for litter or other signs of economic downturns. Photographer Justin Sullivan does a great job at capturing these suburban sacrifices.
