Todd Hido is a SF Bay Area artist and photographer. He is a master with light and color, which helps illuminate the anonymity—of place, of location and of self—that is so central to his work. Who lives in these neighborhoods, in these houses? How did we, the voyeurs, arrive there? We are at once both intrigued and drawn away. The images are solemn, powerful and intriguing.

Todd shows his work at Stephen Wirtz Gallery, and is repped professionally by Edge Reps (those of you in the U.S. may recognize his recent work for Axe deoderant and soap). All three of these sites have extensive images to check out.
