Represented by several international galleries during Paris Photo, and featured in many sales, Todd Hido’s I drive will be on view at the Galerie Particulière until January 15, 2013. An ongoing series begun 20 years ago, Hido, a professor at the California College of Art in San Francisco, is nowhere near stopping. America is big, after all. When asked about his process, he answers, elusively: “I drive. I drive a lot.”

The exhibition takes us on the road, preferably at night, with stops in motels interspersed with portraits of women, sometimes nude, wrapped up in sheets. Hido takes his photographs in passing, stopping when something catches his eye. The choice of framing, lighting (look closely at his landscapes) and the near cinematic storytelling combine to create a special atmosphere.
