Check out the slideshow on CNN. Opening on Saturday, May 5, 2-6p. From the article:

“Across the country, foreclosure takes away the homes – and what some see as the rights – of Americans. The housing crisis has hit the rich and the poor, homeowners and renters.

Ten photographers (eight are featured) from different backgrounds display their imagery on the walls of the Alice Austen House, in Staten Island, New York, which was the home of the photographer of the same name – until she lost it to the bank in the 1940s.

“It’s an installation within itself,” said Paul Moakley, deputy photo editor at Time and curator of the piece.

The exhibition, called “Foreclosed: Documents from the American Housing Crisis,” ranges from photojournalism to fine art photography, with each photographer’s interpretation representing the housing crisis.”
