GREENE | Todd Hido’s “Interiors”

Much of Todd Hido’s photography is without subjects. Capturing interior spaces, the exteriors of houses at night or isolated suburban outcroppings, Hido’s photography peers into the sheltered spaces of private life and is less revealing than suggestive of untold stories.

The feel of Hido’s work is voyeuristic: the perspective of his photographs feels privileged but is not entirely satisfying because we are never shown the private moments his photographs come so close to revealing.

Hido’s photographs do not depict the leftovers of a Thanksgiving meal, or wine-stained glasses at a cocktail party, or a child’s shoe prints in a mudroom; rather they indicate scenes of great loneliness, solitude and isolation.
