Bright Black World (First edition, signed)
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’, many of Hido’s new images allude to and provide form for this notion of an apocalyptic, never-ending winter.
This newest publication highlights 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 comprises 48 plates printed in a spectacular oversized format, and features a stunning fold-out poster. This first printing is limited to 3,000 clothbound copies. Limited stock available.
