Todd Hido: Nymph Daughters (Signed)
Nymph Daughters by Todd Hido (b. 1968) is a departure that brings him back to some of his narrative sequencing experiments he played with in graduate school while studying with Larry Sultan. This series started with two photos―the first image of found studio portrait of a mother made in the 1950’s―and another found archival newspaper photograph taken by a reporter of the aftermath of an auto accident. Hido put the portrait at the front of the book and the car crash at the back and worked to narratively connect the two using his own archive of portraits, landscapes, and photographs of houses.
The resulting book is a pulp tale that hints at some of the undercurrents and backgrounds that many of the people Hido has used in his other projects have hinted at.
