Photographs by Todd Hido.
Nazraeli Press, Tucson, 2002. 56 pp., 26 four-color illustrations, 14x17".
Signed! Outskirts continues to mine the rich vein that Hido began to unearth in House Hunting (Cat# TR077H), which photo-eye named "Best First Monograph" this past Spring. His large-format color photographs of suburbia are made almost exclusively at night, transforming familiar landscapes into eerie, mysterious spaces. Outskirts opens with an introduction by writer Luc Sante and was designed as a companion volume to House Hunting; it is oversized and exquisitely printed. The deluxe edition of 25 copies comes with an original print, numbered and signed by the artist and is presented in a clothbound clamshell box.
About the Ltd Edition
Hido's House Hunting (Cat# TR077H $100) was given our Best First Monograph award just this past Spring, and it is such a pleasant surprise to see this companion volume published so quickly upon the heels of that first, critically acclaimed book. Of Hido's nightscapes, Mary Hull Webster of Artweek, had the following to say, "Photography is arguably the most accomplished art form of the moment, and one of its most intelligent practitioners is Todd Hido." The limited edition is set at a mere 25 copies, and comes with a signed and numbered color print (image above) housed with the book in a beautiful clamshell box.
The Deluxe Edition of 25 copies comes with an original print, numbered and signed by the artist and presented in a clamshell box.
