Hidos images contain traces and impressions of lives previously having been lived in the now-empty homes.

His potent and surreal photographs of empty spaces evoke a longing for the time when things were better in those homes. What went wrong? Who used to lived there? Borensztein, an immigrant from Poland, visited homes and businesses in the suburbs of Stockton, Fresno and Bakersfield, photographing his subjects in front of a generic backdrop to create a rich sociological document. In Witness Number 7, Borenszteins subjects stand in metaphorically for the families evicted from Hidos foreclosed homes.

The book closes with what Hido describes as a slowly cooked stew of books a 40-page run of images documented off the pages of certain books in his library that have influenced Hidos work during the past 20 years, curated into a narrative of echos and inspirations.
