Todd hiddo


Guest at the 2020 Contact Plates Festival

Todd Hido, American photographer was born in 1968. During his long journeys, he pursues the search for images which relate to his memories. His very particular use of color suggests an instability behind the appearance of the landscapes and situations he photographs. Author of several books, his images appear in the collections of important American museums. He is represented in Paris by the Les Filles du Calvaire gallery. During his photographic residency for the Planches Contact Festival, he surveyed the Normandy countryside and staged models in a special light, inspired by that of painters from the North and Flemish painting.   

Todd Hido lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. His work has appeared in Artforum, The New York Times Magazine, Eyemazing, Wired, Elephant, FOAM, and Vanity Fair. His photographs are in the permanent collections of the Getty, the Whitney Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Young Museum, the Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as well as in numerous other public and private collections. Author of over a dozen books, including the monograph Excerpts from Silver Meadows, published in 2013, Intimate Distance: Twenty-Five Years of Photographs, a Chronological Album published by Aperture in 2016. His latest book, titled Bright Black World a was edited in 2018 by Nazraeli Press.

Todd Hido is also a collector of photographic books and his collection was recognized as one of the largest in the world in 2018 by Random House (Bibliomania: The World's Most Interesting Private Libraries).
