Publisher's Description

We are thrilled to announce the publication of Todd Hido’s new monograph, Bright Black World. For over two decades, Hido has crafted narratives through loose and mysterious suburban scenes, desolate landscapes, and stylized portraits. He has traversed North America capturing places that feel at once familiar and unknown; welcoming and unsettling. Underscoring the influences of Nordic mythology and specifically the idea of Fimbulwinter, which translates into the ‘endless winter’, many of Hido’s new images allude to and provide form for this notion of an apocalyptic, never-ending winter.

Exploring the dark terrain of the Northern European landscape and regions as far as the North Sea of Japan enchanted Hido, calling him back on several occasions. This newest publication highlights the artist’s first significant foray extensively photographing territory outside of the United States, chronicling a decidedly new psychological geography.

Opening with a text by Alexander Nemerov, Bright Black World comprises 48 plates printed in an oversized format, and featuring two vertical gatefolds and a fold-out poster measuring some 25 x 40 inches. This first printing is limited to 3,000 clothbound copies.
