Todd Hido - #10320 - 2011/2016
Aperture is pleased to release this special limited-edition photograph by Todd Hido on the occasion of the soon-to-be-released first comprehensive monograph of his work, Intimate Distance: Twenty-Five years of Photographs, A Chronological Album. This stunning publication charts the career of this acclaimed American photographer. 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.
This image is classic Todd Hido, with its masterful attention to color and light culminating in a cinematic turn in the road. The massive, gorgeous tree silhouette dominates and brings a distinctly American, romantic quality to the image, while the small details—the grasses in the foreground, the tiny houses in the distance, the glint of the dwindling twilight in the puddle—complete the piece. The mingled areas of sharp and soft focus through the windshield are reminiscent of memory, etched in perfect imperfection. The day is coming to an end, with what might have been a splendid sunset, now gloaming, as we head down the turn in the road to somewhere new or familiar.
