Todd Hido (born 1968, Kent, Ohio, United States) is an American contemporary artist and photographer. Currently based in San Francisco, much of Hido's work involves urban and suburban housing across the U.S., of which the artist produces large, highly detailed and luminous color photographs. Hido says he is influenced by Alfred Hitchcock, Edward Hopper, Stephen Shore, Robert Adams, Walker Evans, Nan Goldin, Emmet Gowin, Larry Sultan, Alfred Stieglitz, Andreas Gursky and Rineke Dijkstra.
