In this installment of The Photography Workshop Series, Todd Hido explores the genres of landscape, interior and nude photography, with emphasis on creating images from a personal perspective and with a sense of intimacy.
Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches to, teachings on, and insights into photography―offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers at all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Each book features the creative process and core thinking of a photographer told in their own words and through pictures of their choosing, and is introduced by a well-known student of the featured photographer.
Through words and photographs, Hido offers insight into his own practice and discusses a wide range of creative issues, including mining one's own memory and experience as inspiration; using light, texture and detail for greater impact; exploring the narrative potential activated when sequencing images; and creating powerful stories with emotional weight and beauty.
“Todd Hido on Landscapes, Interiors, and The Nude is a witty, knowledgeable book that demonstrates the art of photography and the process of photographic creation, and thoroughly contextualizes the work of the great American contemporary photographer, Todd Hido.” ―Musee Magazine
"As a reading experience, the books feel more like monographs with expansive captions than generic how-to guides." ―Eye Magazine
