A Road Divided.
Photographs by Todd Hido.
64 pp., 28 color illustrations, 14x17".
Nazraeli Press is pleased to announce Todd Hido’s new book of
landscape photographs, A Road Divided, in which the artist again
focuses his attention on the American landscape. Driving lonely
roads on the outskirts of cities, Hido creates poignant images
filled with inexplicable gravity, cinematic scenes of places that
somehow exist in our collective memory. In these new pictures,
Hido demonstrates his fluidity within the daytime realm, putting
aside the harder edge that characterizes his night work by
photographing through veils of rain or ice. Delicately, potently,
embracing the beauty of the pictorial, Hido’s new pictures present
an image plane that is often fully disintegrated, recalling impressionist
painting. With an unquestionably modern effect, he
often frames the compositions from inside his car, photographing
straight through the windshield, using it as an additional lens
and bringing a sense of timing and moment to these stationary
scenes. Todd Hido’s photographs have been exhibited internationally,
and are included in numerous museum collections,
including the Whitney Museum of Art, New York; Guggenheim
Museum, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art;
and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
