What comes into your mind when you hear the word "landscape"? Some might say the scenes they encounter every day, while for others, it would be the different cultures and lands that lie at the end of their journeys. Some would even answer the scenery shown in their PCs. The birth of photographs has provided people an alternative to paintings, allowing them to capture countless landscapes using their cameras. We have now reached a point where anyone can easily take photos, expanding its meaning over time. 2020 is a time of rapid change. I look forward to recapturing old landscapes while paying close attention to our surroundings and discovering new sceneries.

トッド・ハイド Todd Hido
Todd Hido (born in Kent, Ohio, 1968) wanders endlessly, taking lengthy road trips in search of imagery that connects with his own memories. Through his unique landscape process and signature color palette, Hido alludes to the quiet and mysterious side of suburban America?where uniform communities provide for a stable facade?implying the instability that often lies behind the walls. His photographs are in many private and public collections, including the Getty, Los Angeles; Whitney Museum of American Art; MoMA: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Notably, Pier 24 Photography holds the archive of all his published works. He has published more than a dozen books, including the award-winning monographs by Nazraeli Press, House Hunting (2001) and Excerpts from Silver Meadows (2013), as well as the innovative B-Sides Box Set that function as a companion piece. His Aperture titles include Todd Hido on Landscapes, Interiors, and the Nude (2014), part of The Photography Workshop series, and the mid-career survey Intimate Distance: Twenty-Five Years of Photographs, A Chronological Album (2016).
