Ray Perez presents Todd Hido

Todd Hido captures a feeling of solitude in the function and structure that we consider our homes. We don't really take the time to observe the atmosphere created by natural and artificial lighting. The elements of fog and snow add more visual stimulation to the image. The glowing interior lights provoke our imagination about the lives that exist inside these lonely structures.
I appreciate his series of barren interior spaces. It forces us to look around the space to try to locate objects other then the walls or doors. The ambient light, again, contribute to the strangeness of seeing or being in an empty room. I am also affected by the color of the light in combination with the color of the interiors. These images are good examples of photographing a mundane subject matter and capturing an intriguing observation.
