Todd Hido

Todd Hido's pictures of the interiors of foreclosed houses shows a beautiful handling of light, color, and geometric shape. The recession of the wall, where it meets with the closet and the positioning of the doors all balance to create a simple and eloquent composition. The gentle blue and pink of the cool lighting creates and empty and deserted feeling to the space. This also illustrates how the article described the infinite number of shots that could be taken while only one is the right one. Though this room and even this corner could have been shot from any number of angles, but this one picture that the photographer chose as the "right" one, the one where all the elements align to create balance and calm.
