Photographs by Todd Hido. Text by A.M. Homes.
Nazraeli Press, Tucson, 2001. 56 pp., 26 four-color illustrations, 13x17".
Second printing that is a faithful reprint of the 2002 first printing.
House Hunting was an instant photo-eye favorite for all of the right reasons: the book itself is arresting, handsomely designed, beautifully printed in luscious four-color, and measuring 14x17 inches. Most important, however, is that each of these elements serves Hido's imagery, perfectly blending substance and form. The large color photographs, made primarily at night, portray suburbia as lonely and perplexing, yet utterly familiar. 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.
