Todd Hido @ Stephen Wirtz in San Francisco

From the Stephen Wirtz website
"Stephen Wirtz Gallery is pleased to present Excerpts from Silver Meadows, an exhibition of new photographs by Todd Hido.  Sequenced to form an almost cinematic narrative, atmospheric landscapes of in-between, and isolated places in America provide the setting, and portraits of female subjects, broken starlets in suburban dress, stand in as the main characters. While the subject matter is mined from Hido’s own experience growing up in Kent, Ohio, what results is a collectively familiar, yet entirely imaginary and dreamlike melodrama untethered from a specific time and place, a visual pulp novel of Midwest mythology."
