Todd Hido - About His Work
November 26, 2008

American photographer Todd Hido, who has a reputation as a master of his craft, has had his work shown around the world for many years. His signature pieces are night-time shots of empty suburbs and the wilderness. He usually draws inspiration from his past, delving into his memories and childhood images from the suburbs in which he grew up. His photos strike a chord with the viewers, as if each of the pictured stories were a version of something already familiar to us.

Photographs by Hido are part of the collections of the world's largest and most prestigious cultural institutions, including the Guggenheim Museum, the George Eastman House, the Whitney Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. His works are now on display at the Yours Gallery in Warsaw at what is Hido's first individual exhibition in Europe. The 29 large-format color and black-and-white pictures are exhibited on three floors in the gallery. Some of the work is being shown for the first time in public.

On Friday Nov. 28 at 6 p.m., Hido will give a lecture and presentation of his work and experiences.

The exhibition is open through Jan. 20.
