Intimate Distance is the first comprehensive monograph showcasing the career of acclaimed American photographer Todd Hido. This book gathers his most iconic images for the first time and brings a fresh perspective to his life’s work with the inclusion of many unpublished photographs.
First of all, Hido is well known for his photographs of landscapes and suburban housing across the United States, as well as his use of luminous colour. Hido casts a distinctly cinematic eye across all that he photographs, as a result he has become instantly recognisable. David Campany introduces the work and looks at Hido’s cinematic influences and the kind of viewing the work demands.
The book is organized chronologically, firstly showing how his series overlap in new ways. Also featured are short interviews with Hido about the making of each of his monographs. Finally from exterior to interior, from landscapes to nudes Hido’s vision is clear. Hido’s practice and his unique focus has developed and shifted over time, so this book attempts to show that.
