1st Printing. Signed. 76 pages. Published in 2006. Collection of color photographs. Now considered a contemporary photography classic. Limited Edition of 2000 copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the Second Edition. The First Limited Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Todd Hido and Chris Pichler: Oversize-volume format in wide oblong shape. Black hard boards with white titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Todd Hido. Poem, "Energy", by Raymond Carver appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Todd Hido's "Between The Two". His fourth, and in many ways, most hauntingly beautiful collection thus far. His three previous collections, "House Hunting", "Outskirts", and "Roaming", are also "must-viewing" for serious photography collectors. Apart from the fact that Hido continues to mine the desolate terrain he has explored in the past, he also finally shows some of the most poignant and moving female nudes anyone is ever likely to see. "Weaves photographs of abandoned houses together with portraits of anonymous models in motel rooms that have obviously seen better days. Todd Hido's work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and is included in the Permanent Collections of such museums as The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art" (Publisher's blurb). Cutting-edge museums are not the only admirers of Todd Hido's work. No one is surprised that Michael Kenna's landscape work has an enormous international following. Todd Hido's landscapes (of places and now, the body) are not instantly or conventionally pleasing to the eye. His subjects are loneliness and decay, and their immanent transcendence, which gradually dawns on the viewer, the uncanny photographic equivalent of the works of Raymond Carver, Sam Shepard, and Wim Wenders: An abandoned house and a dream-like female subject are enigmatic yet sublime metaphors for the broken soul. Hido has clearly struck a chord because he has been incredibly successful and commands a remarkable cult following. An absolute "must-have" title for Todd Hido collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Todd Hido. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: A Second Edition was issued in Summer 2007, and is now also sold out. Hido did not sign most copies of either edition. A rare signed copy thus. 35 color plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER TODD HIDO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1590051769. Bookseller Inventory # 11542
