On the Block: Two Photographs by Todd Hido
Todd Hido's series Roaming
transcends the genres of landscape or documentary, taking a theme that would be familiar to New Topographic photographers—the desolate landscape, showing subtle but unmistakable traces of human intervention—But unlike them, his aim does not ever seem to be socio-environmental critique. Rather it is cinematic: drama comes is a function of the lighting—vivid skies of dusk and the muted light of heavy, overcast conditions—but also of the forlorn roads and fields.
