GOAL

Find your own path in capturing the inherent tensions of both the human body and landscapes

BIOGRAPHY

American, b. 1968. Drawing from childhood memories as a creative wellspring, Hido wanders endlessly, taking lengthy road trips in search of imagery that connects with his own recollections. For his landscapes the artist chooses to photograph during overcast days and often frames his images through the vantage point of his car, using the windshield as an additional lens. Through this unique process and signature color palette, he alludes to the quiet and mysterious side of suburban America, where uniform communities provide for a stable façade, while concealing the instability that lies within its walls.

While Hido is notorious for photographing suburbia from the outside as his pictures of well-worn dwellings evidence, he has also entered the interiors of these houses and integrated the human form into his work. His ability to capture the inherent tensions of both the human body and landscapes marks his work as a starting point of a broader discussion. Any narrative inferred form his work is entirely a construct of the viewer’s imagination heightened by Hido’s power of sequencing photographs and his fascination with a cinematic style of image making.

Program

«I will share the honest and intricate parts of my process of shooting and then the equally important other half of being a photographer: making choices about what images work the best and what sequence and context does for them. Where and how do you show your work? on a wall? a book? a tumblr? During the workshop I'll break it down to the essential choices that need to be made and how one choice does not fit all. Often students end up seeing and discovering something that is easily attainable to them. I will review their work and give them feedback on current projects. As well, we will spend a few days working on shooting different genres of work; locations like my spaces, some night shots, and we'll shoot some portraits as well.» Todd Hido

This will be a hands on workshop with shooting sessions, individual assignments, daily group discussion and editing sessions.

You’ll be expected to fully immerse yourself, take risks and push your boundaries in order to move forward into another level in your photography.
