"For over two decades, Todd Hido has crafted narratives through loose and mysterious suburban scenes, desolate landscapes, and stylized portraits. He has traversed North America capturing places that feel at once familiar and unknown; welcoming and unsettling. Underscoring the influences of Nordic mythology and specifically the idea of Fimbulwinter, which translates into the ‘endless winter’, Hido’s new monograph, "Bright Black World" alludes to and provides form for this notion of an apocalyptic, never-ending winter. Exploring the dark terrain of the Northern European landscape and regions as far as the North Sea of Japan enchanted Hido, calling him back on several occasions. This presents the artist’s first significant foray extensively photographing territory outside of the United States, chronicling a decidedly new psychological geography.
Opening with a text by Alexander Nemerov, "Bright Black World" contains forty-eight plates printed in an oversized format, featuring two vertical gatefolds and a fold-out poster measuring some 25 by 40 inches. This first printing is limited to 3,000 clothbound copies. A brand new, pristine example additionally SIGNED by Todd Hido.
PLEASE NOTE: Copies of "Bright Black World" will be signed by the photographer at the event on Saturday, December 15th, and shipped starting on Tuesday, December 18th.
