Todd Hido is an American photographer and artist based in San Francisco, California. He is best known for his large-scale photographs of suburban landscapes and homes, often taken at night or in the early morning hours. His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Hido was born in Kent, Ohio in 1968. He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1991 and his MFA from California College of Arts and Crafts (now California College of the Arts) in Oakland, California in 1996.

Hido's work is characterized by its dreamlike quality and its exploration of themes such as loneliness, alienation, and nostalgia. His photographs often feature empty streets or houses that appear to be abandoned or forgotten. He has said that he is drawn to these places because they evoke a sense of mystery and longing for something that may never be found.

Hido's work has been featured in numerous publications including The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, Aperture Magazine, Wired Magazine, Vogue Italia, and many others. In addition to his photography career he also teaches workshops on photography at various institutions around the world including Stanford University and The International Center for Photography (ICP) in New York City.

In 2017 Hido was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for his work as a photographer. He continues to create new works while exhibiting his photographs around the world.
