Most of Todd Hido's photographs of suburban landscapes are taken during solitary, long drives.

Hido takes his pictures in a 'fairly undirected way', he says, but edits his negatives together and manipulates them until he produces an image that represents his encounter with a place. In describing his process, Hido says, 'I shoot sort of like a documentarian, but I print like a painter.' He has also produced a number of interior shots featuring human figures; his models include his wife and former girlfriends.
