Hido Todd

Photographer

Guest at the 2020 Contact Plates Festival

Todd Hido, American photographer born in 1968, continues on his long journeys to find images that relate to his own memories. With a very particular use of color, Todd HIDO suggests 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 prestigious gallery Les Filles du Calvaire. During his residency, he proposes to survey the Normandy countryside and to stage models under a particular light, inspired by that of northern painters and Flemish painting.
Todd Hido is a San Francisco Bay-based artist whose work has been published 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 many other public and private collections.

Arrived in February in Deauville and returned to San Francisco just before confinement, filled by the northern lights in winter, Todd Hido sublimated landscapes and young women, always on the trail of memories and primitive images.
