"Shelter is a human need. Apparently it is not considered a right. In the richest country in the world, the banks, through predatory practices, are kicking people out of their homes. Here are the faces of some of those people." Michael A Shapiro

Editor's note # Foreclosed presents some of the faces in front of the disturbing statistics of foreclosure rates across the US in the past five years. In Minnesota where much of this story was shot , for foreclosure numbers for the past 5 years is 114,136; the large majority of them in the metro area of Minneapolis. For me Michael A Shapiro's story is a profound story one the meaning of losing a "home" . The loss of that sanctuary along with all the hopes, dreams, memories and stories that go with them.
