Todd Hido photography Posted by Jakub 01/28/09 Todd Hido’s photography grabbed me right from the first image I saw, it first reminded me of Nadav Kander and also Gregory Crewdson who shot that Yo La Tengo cover awhile back. 8 Comments Leave A Comment 1 Alex Cornell says: January 28, 2009 at 11:20 am These are great- very appealing and sophisticated use of light. Each home looks cozy and terrifying at the same time. (summed up perfectly in his monograph’s title: “House Hunting”) 2 Rent says: January 28, 2009 at 11:47 am gorgeous 3 David says: January 28, 2009 at 1:27 pm Although the atmosphere may be a delight, the room itself, carpet, and style are very repulsive in my opinion. That carpet makes me want to throw up. 4 Daniel Carvalho says: January 28, 2009 at 1:38 pm Really cool photographs. They are indeed somehow cozy and homey with a sense of abandonment. They trigger back memories for me and an atmosphere of the past. I can remember sitting down as a kid on carpets like that and just exploring and rolling around. Those carpets are so comfy. The second pic comes straight out of Scott’s universe I think. 5 Rent says: January 28, 2009 at 4:36 pm I agree David…although gorgeous, within there is that carpet…you could puke on that thing and never know where. 6 Shelby White says: January 28, 2009 at 5:00 pm That carpet is hideous! I do like the feel of both photographs. You don’t see that older style much nowadays…at least I don’t. A lot of photo work is falling around HDR and the over use of highpassing ;). 7 Reto says: February 3, 2009 at 7:24 pm Gregory Crewdson did not shoot that Yo La Tengo cover. The band used one of his images for the cover (it is not the full image btw). Still a mighty good record. 8 dave wright says: February 12, 2009 at 7:47 pm todd is a genius. his site is definitely worth a look.
