Nazraeli Press is pleased to announce “Excerpts from Silver Meadows”, our sixth monograph by Todd Hido and his most ambitious project to date. Hido is one of the most widely recognized and influential photographic artists of our time. Silver Meadows is the name of a street that runs through the neighborhood in Kent, Ohio where the artist grew up. The setting of Hido’s childhood, it also became the creative wellspring for his work. Here, it serves as a point of departure for Hido’s reexamination of a Midwestern suburban upbringing; ‘a trip through the innocence of childhood and adolescence and into the darker aspects of life beyond.’ Beautifully printed on matt Japanese art paper, and featuring an ‘installation’ of tipped-in images on the case binding, “Excerpts from Silver Meadows” is printed in a first edition of 3,000 copies.

 

 
   

Reviews:

“In the context of this horribly mundane world of current contemporary photography, Todd's work stands apart from the pack by a wide gap. This gap is made up by the sledgehammer authenticity of Todd's vision, by a violent undercurrent of emotion that hits the viewer like a baseball bat clearing a drunken human path.” - Doug Rickard in American Suburb X
