Todd Hido’s Cleveland Show in PDN

Todd-Hido-Excerpts-from-Silver-Meadows-H

…His new exhibition and book, “Excerpts from Silver Meadows,” which is showing at the newly opened Transformer Station in Cleveland and was recently published by Nazraeli Press, is a semi-autobiographical story of “a loose, fictitious place based on inadequate memory,” Hido says. It’s the story of a fallen suburb, after generations have come and gone, a “psychological take,” Hido says, on “those things that exist and prevail in modern America.”

The book can also be viewed as a story about Hido’s work as an artist until now, about the images and details that fill in the before and after portions of the narratives he’s alluded to in his photographs of house exteriors at night, of foreclosed homes and grimy motels, of women who appear to exist at the margins of society…

Read the review on PDN’s website.

Great exhibition, great book. Look, I bought one (the book, not the exhibition). I even got it signed by Mr. Hido.
