Lectures in Photography: Todd Hido

Todd Hido is best known for his moody exterior views of suburban homes at night. People are not shown in this work but their presence is suggested through the glow of interior light visible through windows. The brooding quality of these works extends into a recent semi-auto biographical body of work Hido created titled Silver Meadows, which is the name of the neighborhood where he grew up in Kent, Ohio. This film-noir like work blends past and present, real and imagined and includes images of women, domestic spaces, ephemera and the landscape.

This lecture is presented in conjunction with the Columbia College Chicago Photography Department.
