About Khrystyna's World by Todd Hido
This is Khrystyna's world. Something is about to happen. And 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. Furthermore even in his disturbing yet evocative images of female models.
As a result, Hido's compelling images create 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. Without even realising it, we get taken into Khrystyan's world, image by image, interacting with all these moods. Also, with the places she takes us to. And we allow her to take us there each time.
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.
