About The The Todd Hido Collection

Todd Hido (born in Kent, Ohio, 1968) wanders endlessly, taking lengthy road trips in search of imagery that connects with his own memories. Through his unique landscape process and signature color palette, Hido alludes to the quiet and mysterious side of suburban America—where uniform communities provide for a stable façade—implying the instability that often lies behind the walls.

His photographs are in over 50 private and public collections around the world, including the Getty, Whitney Museum of American Art, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Pier 24 Photography holds the archive of all of his published works. Hido has published more than a dozen books, including the award-winning monographs House Hunting (2001) and Excerpts from Silver Meadows (2013). His Aperture titles include Todd Hido on Landscapes, Interiors, and the Nude (2014) and Intimate Distance: Twenty-Five Years of Photographs (2016).

He returned to the cinematic landscape photography that he first explored with Roaming (2003) with Bright Black World (2018), and followed it up with The End Sends Advance Warning (2024). Hido is also a collector, and over the last twenty-five years has created a notable photobook collection of over 8,500 titles, which was featured in Bibliostyle: How We Live at Home with Books (2019).

His work has influenced multiple Hollywood productions, such as The Batman, Spike Jones‘s Her, Sam Levinson‘s Euphoria, Issa López‘s True Detective: Night Country, and the upcoming directorial project by Jason Momoa, Chief of War. He is also one of the subjects of Momoa‘s documentary project on creative makers, On The Roam.

In his recent work, Todd Hido utilizes the Leica SL2, SL2-S and S3 cameras.
