On view in the slide show above are photographs from his different series of work including anonymous models in motel rooms, interiors of abandoned houses, as well as outside views of homes at night. Born in Ohio in 1968, Hido’s work can be found in many prominent collections, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He has exhibited widely in galleries and museums across the country and he has published several monographs such as House Hunting (Nazraeli Press, 2001) and Between the Two (Nazraeli Press, 2006). He recently published a limited-edition artist book Ohio as part of the Subscription Series, combining pictures he took as a child and recent photos taken with the same camera. He is also releasing a new monograph Witness No. 7 (Nazraeli Press) this spring on abandoned homes and the stories of previous lives they hold.
