Todd Hido: Fragmented Narratives

todd_hido_fragmented_narratives

Fragmented Narratives, Todd Hido's second solo show with the [Bruce Silverstein Gallery]. Renowned as a master of sequencing in book format, Hido juxtaposes images from his influential monographs House Hunting, A Road Divided, Outskirts, and Between the Two with portraits and new images never before exhibited. Hido successfully extends his narrative from a linear book format to an almost cinematic storyline forged by his grouping and pairing of images unrelated in time or place, his female subjects acting as the characters in his photographic sequences. Hido's eerily lit nocturnal images of suburban houses allude to the often discomforting, lonely American scenes by the painter Edward Hopper as well as mirror the director David Lynch's interest and attention to the seedy underside of suburban American culture. www.brucesilversteingallery.com
