"I frequently enjoy working in the brackish waters between ethnography and art, as well as within the authority and authenticity of the museum.

With beauty and surprise, I try making the familiar strange and the strange comprehensible."— Erik Boker

Todd Hido: House Hunting (1st Edition) Todd Hido: House Hunting (1st Edition)

Interiors and exteriors are photographed while light spills in from the windows or bathes the aluminum siding in an otherworldly glow. "In Hido's photographs, the rest of the world remains present, but unseen—its demands to be expressed or signified are held in abeyance, stirring the viewer's own memories."—Artweek.
