COLOGNE.- With their current exhibition Kaune, Sudendorf Gallery presents works by the renowned American fine art photographer Todd Hido.

Hido has emerged as a photographer through his night shots from the series ‚House Hunting‘, where he photographed houses in the suburbs of America. Contrary to the clear language of the pictures and the precise execution of this work are his slightly melancholic, almost pictoral landscapes.

Photographed through the windshield of his car, he presents the world through a diffuse veil of water and ice. Some details are sharp while others melt into abstract fluid forms. And although one cannot see clearly through the glass, one still gets an impression of the vastness that may lie beyond in endless highways.

Through the visible separation of the inner and outside world the photographer emphasizes himself more than before in this work. His landscapes are metaphors for personal emotions. We see and feel intimacy with the photographed places as if they somehow reside in our collective memory.

Now, for the first time in Europe, Kaune, Sudendorf presents a selection of these impressive landscape photographs in an exhibition sharing it’s title with his latest book: ‘A Road Divided’.

Todd Hido, born in 1968 in Kent/Ohio, studied at the Boston ‚School of the Museum of Fine Arts’ and the ‚Tufts University‘. He graduated from the ‚California College of Arts and Crafts’ with his M.F.A. in 1996. His photographs have been exhibited internationally, and are included in well-known museum collections like the Whitney Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, George Eastman House and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Numerous publications document his accomplishments, many of his monographs have long been sold out.

Todd Hido lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
