Was wonderful to see my former teacher Abelardo "Abe" Morell here in the Bay Area who was here in honor of the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Abe set up a tent camera obscura of the Golden Gate Bridge at Ft Baker and was one of sixteen artists featured in International Orange, an exhibit of new work by contemporary artists responding to the Golden Gate Bridge as icon, historic structure, and conceptual inspiration.
Todd Hido: House Hunting
Presented in the Pier 24 Photography exhibition HERE.
May 23, 2011 - January 31, 2012
Todd Hido's color photographs of domestic landscapes reflect the artist's interest in the themes of home, family, and memory. Taken at night, his photographs depict anonymous dwellings, their windows glowing in the soft darkness; the resulting feeling is one of unsettling isolation and unease. Hido captures a haunting suburbia through the absence of people and the careful modulation of light and color, alluding to imagined narratives taking place inside.
