"Susan Meiselas was walking near her apartment on Mott Street in the winter of 1976 when she spotted a figure in a crimson suit, a stocking cap with fur trim and a long white beard making his way down the sidewalk before disappearing into the subway. Curious, Ms. Meiselas followed him." More on The New York Times - Lens - Photography-->http://nyti.ms/1cG4izP Photo © Susan Meiselas/Magnum Photos USA. New York City. 1977.

"Fascinated by the idea that photography can be a vehicle for exploring the ‘architecture of his childhood’, Todd Hido once again sets out down the street that runs through his neighbourhood in Kent, Ohio where the artist grew up. Cinematic and highly-charged with a bitter-sweet intensity, Excerpts from Silver Meadows continues Hido’s trip from the innocence of childhood to the darker side of what prevails in his own adult universe. Effortlessly blending portraits, interiors and brooding landscapes as well as appropriated images, it’s an intricate and complex tapestry that tells Hido’s own story while employing the power of suggestion to impressive effect. With lavish production values (the book is printed on matt Japanese paper with tipped-in images on the case binding), this oversized but elegant book marks Hido’s sixth monograph to date with the esteemed publisher, Nazraeli Press." 1000 Words Editor in Chief, Tim Clark, on his favourite photobook of 2013.
