Talk & Book Signing
Todd Hido at Zona Maco Foto
Saturday, August 25
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Please join photographer Todd Hido and Aperture’s Associate Publisher Amelia Lang in conversation at Zona Maco Foto. An internationally renowned artist, Hido explores the genres of landscape, interior, and nude photography, with an emphasis on creating images from a personal perspective and with a sense of intimacy. While he is perhaps best known for photographing suburban dwellings from the outside, he has also entered the interiors of these houses and integrated the human form into his work. Lang and Hido’s conversation will center on not only his process, but also on the central role of photobooks in his creative practice.
Zona Maco Foto presents its fourth edition on August 22–26, 2018, with a selection of vintage, modern, and contemporary photography from worldwide galleries. Visit Aperture’s booth to view a range of limited-edition prints and our latest publications.

In The Photography Workshop Series, Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches, teachings, and insights on photography—offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers of all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Each book features the creative process and core thinking of a photographer told in their own words and through pictures of their choosing. Each volume is introduced by a well-known student of the featured photographer.
In this book, Todd Hido explores the genres of landscape, interior, and nude photography, with an emphasis on creating images from a personal perspective and with a sense of intimacy. Through words and photographs, he reveals insight into his own practice and discusses a wide range of creative issues, including mining one’s own memory and experience as inspiration; using light, texture, and detail for greater impact; exploring the narrative potential activated when sequencing images; and creating powerful stories with emotional weight and beauty.
