‘Light and Dark Chambers’

Todd Hido - Intimate Distance, Aperture, 2016

‘Light and Dark Chambers’ is an essay commissioned for the photographer Todd Hido’s major survey Intimate Distance: 25 Years, published by Aperture, 2016. French co-edition published by Editions Textuel.

From Aperture’s catalogue:

Well-known for his photographs of landscapes and suburban housing across the United States, and for his use of luminous color, Hido casts a distinctly cinematic eye across all that he photographs, digging deep into his memory and imagination for inspiration. David Campany introduces the work and looks specifically at Hido’s relation to cinema and the kind of spectatorship his work demands. The book is organized chronologically, showing in new ways how his many series overlap.  From exterior to interior, surface observations to subconscious investigations, landscapes to portraits, this mid-career survey gives an insight into Hido’s photographs, and illustrates how his unique approach has developed over the last twenty-five years.
