If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

American photography: Todd Hido « Previous | |Next »
September 28, 2013

Todd Hido (born 1968, Kent, Ohio) is an American contemporary artist and photographer. Currently based in San Francisco, 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.

The landscapes were made through shot through the window of a car, which you only see as smudges of rain that blurs parts of the landscapes:

The work is sombre and moody. America is an empty place, evidenced by crossroads, dead-end streets, broken trees, and seemingly endless highways. I'm interested in this work as I've recently been taking photos through car windows.
