Anthony Suau: Foreclosure Crisis Follow-Up

Cleveland was one of the worst-hit US cities in the foreclosure crisis, with many neighborhoods filled with abandoned houses. On assignment for TIME in March 2008, photographer Anthony Suau was working on a story about the crisis in Cleveland, and made a haunting picture of a police officer conducting a foreclosure eviction which eventually won World Press Photo for that year.

Suau returned to the city in 2010 to follow up on the story and make a multimedia piece on its attempts to dig out of the mess, including one housing court judge whose efforts to make owners and banks take responsibility for their properties and communities is making a difference.
