Newly remastered edition of Todd Hido’s iconic and highly sought after monograph, House Hunting. To celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of this important book, certainly one of the most influential and oft-cited photography monographs of our time, Nazraeli Press has collaborated closely with the artist to achieve a new impression of the highest possible fidelity. Printed on heavy weight matte art paper. Using cutting edge technologies in both the pre-press and production phases. This new edition of House Hunting stays true to the original design and format while delivering even more accurate color rendition and nuances in tone and saturation. To those fortunate enough to own a copy of the original edition, it further highlights the images themselves that first catapulted the artist and his first monograph to fame.
Todd Hido’s large color photographs of suburbia are lonely, forlorn, mysterious… but strangely comforting. Hido photographs the interior rooms of repossessed tract homes, and the outsides of similar houses at night whose habitation is suggested by the glow of a television set or unseen overhead bulb. Seldom does the similar evoke such melancholy. Yet rather than passing judgment on his anonymous subjects, Hido manages to turn the banal into something beautiful. Imbuing his prints of interiors with soft pastels, and allowing the exteriors to glow in the cool evening air. — From the description of the first printing of House Hunting, announced in 2000.
