Todd Hido: Light from Within
Sep 6 – Oct 19, 2019
Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire
Paris, France

To launch the new post-summer season in September, Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire in Paris has the pleasure of announcing the solo exhibition of American photographer Todd Hido: Light from Within. The gallery will host an exceptional set of images from the Houses at Night series, which made Hido famous. Bright Black World, which tackles, with continued force and beauty, the tragic question of our landscapes undergoing change, complements this group. And a few of his emblematic portraits are spread throughout this panorama. Parallel to the exhibition, the book House Hunting will be republished by Nazraeli Press.

House Hunting is the perfect image of Todd Hido’s artistic and physical wandering; the artist travelled through America by car in order to capture its mystery. The subject is clear, titled without frills: houses seen at night. And yet, the treatment of the image, so recognizable, leads spectators towards a more romantic symbolism, tinged with a certain nostalgia. Its artistic filter is hazy like the mind. To make our imagination more fecund and to stimulate our projections, the presence of mankind is merely implicit. No shadow puppet silhouette. This absence reinforces the work’s mysterious charge and only by the faint glow that emanates from these houses do we guess that they’re inhabited.
