In his celebrated shots of American suburbia, Todd Hido (Ohio, USA, 1958) excels in capturing the discarded 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 vulnerability, while others exhibit empowerment.
The 2015 exhibition Selections From A Survey: Khrystyna's World invited viewers to dwell on the images and ideas that have followed the artist through his lifetime, continually finding new manifestations in his work. Reflected are Hido's classic nocturnal themes and populated primarily with photographs of his model Khrystyna – a tacit partner in his cinematic narratives, and a shapeshifter in the nightscapes, interiors, and psychological landscapes that she haunts.
This collector's edition, an archival pigment print entitled "10504-9" housed in a handmade linen slipcase, also includes a signed copy of the hardcover book published by the gallery on the occasion of the exhibition Selections From A Survey: Khrystyna’s World with an essay by Katya Tylevich.
