Blogging about Photography and Art

Todd Hido

Todd Hido is a San Francisco based photographer. He has photographs hanging in some of the biggest galleries and museums in the U.S. Much of Hido’s work involves urban and suburban housing across the U.S., of which the artist produces large, highly detailed and luminous color photographs.

“Hido’s photographs reveal isolation and anonymity in contemporary suburbia. Eerily lit rooms and suddenly abandoned homes increase the effect of loneliness and loss.” ~Tom E. Hinson

Born in Ohio in 1968, Hido’s work can be found in many prominent collections, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He has exhibited widely in galleries and museums across the country and he has published several monographs such as House Hunting (Nazraeli Press, 2001) and  Between the Two (Nazraeli Press, 2006). He recently published a limited-edition artist book Ohio as part of the Subscription Series, combining pictures he took as a child and recent photos taken with the same camera. He is also releasing a new monograph Witness No. 7(Nazraeli Press) this spring on abandoned homes and the stories of previous lives they hold.
