Witness # 7
HC, 24,5 x 30,5 cm., o.pp.
A soulful new creation by the Bay Area, Larry Sultan- educated Todd Hido. Part of the "Witness" series to which Lee Friedlander has also contributed, the book combines Hido's own documentation with his selections of works by Leon Borensztein and pages from some of his favorite photobooks. All photos in the book give witness to the ever-present reality of home foreclosure In California, as well as to the causes and results of this phenomenon. As Hido himself has mentioned, "walls do talk": the empty houses seem to mourn the loss of the lives inside of them.
