Todd Hido's striking new monograph, Between the Two, weaves photographs of abandoned houses together with portraits of anonymous models in motel rooms that have obviously seen better days. Hido's uncanny ability to let seediness shine with an internal beauty was first displayed in book form with his 2001 monograph, House Hunting. That first monograph, as well as his follow-up book Outskirts, are now out-of-print, and highly sought-after in the rare book market. Between the Two comprises 35 photographs beautifully printed on matt art paper, and bound in an oversized format. This first printing is limited to 2,000 casebound copies. Todd Hido's work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and is included in the permanent collections of such museums as the Cleveland Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
