Something is going to happen. We can feel it. A car pulling up. An argument overheard. The shattering of glass. Or maybe it already happened: a crumpled bed, a lamp left on, a door slammed shut.

In his celebrated shots of American suburbia, photographer Todd Hido excels in capturing a sense of the disturbed moment. Whether in his eerie exteriors of isolated houses at night, where the only source of life emanates on to the street from a single lit room, or his carefully framed interior shots of freshly tousled sheets of a single bed, or the numbing glare of an old TV set, and even in his disturbing yet evocative images of female models, a confusing yet very real range of female identities lifted from his past — we feel a sense of unease: some allow vulnerability and others exhibit empowerment.

These powerful cinematic images have a rich cultural impact, recalling the legacy of filmmakers such as Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch, novelists Raymond Carver and Stephen King.

Edition of 500 copies.
