Todd Hido House Hunting Photography 2001 Rare 1st ed of 2000 copies. Stunning size: 17"x 14" First monograph of Todd Hido. House Hunting was an instant favorite for all of the right reasons: the book itself is arresting, handsomely designed, beautifully printed in luscious four-color, and measures nearly 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. Todd Hidos large color photographs of suburbia are lonely, forlorn, mysterious and strangely comforting.

Hido photographs the interior rooms of repossessed tract homes, and the outsides of similar houses at night whose habitation is suggested by the glow of a television set or unseen overhead bulb. Seldom does the similar evoke such melancholy. Yet rather than passing judgment on his anonymous subjects, Hido manages to turn the banal into something beautiful, imbuing his prints of interiors with soft pastels, and allowing the exteriors to glow in the cool evening air.
