About Bright Black World
For over two decades, Hido has crafted narratives through loose and mysterious suburban scenes, desolate landscapes, and also stylized portraits. He has traversed North America capturing places that feel at once familiar and unknown; welcoming and unsettling. However; now Hido has explored the dark terrain of the Northern European landscape and regions as far as the North Sea of Japan. As a result, the newest publication highlights the artist's first significant foray extensively photographing territory outside of the United States. Opening with a text by Alexander Nemerov.
