From the Stephen Wirtz website:
"Stephen Wirtz Gallery is pleased to present
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."
