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.
"[Roaming] is a car's-eye view of America. So random and laid back are these shots that they might well have been taken by the vehicle itself, without human intervention."—Grace Glueck, NY Times, 2004

An excellent print with no apparent flaws.
