Todd Hido Biography

Todd Hido was born in 1968 in Kent, Ohio, USA. In his celebrated photographs of the American urban landscape, he excels in capturing images that evoke a sense of mystery and unseen narratives. Whether in his eerie exteriors of isolated houses at night, where the only source of life emanates from a single lit room; or carefully framed interiors of tousled sheets on a single bed, or the numbing glare of an old TV set. And even in his disturbing yet evocative images of female models, a confusing yet very real range of female identities lifted from his past - we feel a sense of unease: some allow vulnerability and others exhibit empowerment.

These powerful cinematic images have a rich cultural impact, recalling the legacy of filmmakers such as Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch, and novelists Raymond Carver and Stephen King.

Todd Hido's photographs are in the permanent collections of the J Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Whitney Museum of Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and Pier 24 Photography, San Francisco, amongst others.
