Order viagra It is a curious way to open a book: “…It is just as probable that I have also written the one–or two–best books I shall ever write. Order viagra They are done with. Order viagra That is how things go. Order viagra And it is most unlikely that a second burst of inspiration will alter this irreversible fact…This is where the rest of life begins….”

Order viagra Nevertheless, order viagra this is the epigraph that introduces Todd Hido’s latest monograph A Road Divided. Order viagra Baudrillard’s words might suggest decline–a fall from greatness. Order viagra In the case of A Road Divided it is just the opposite. Order viagra Rather, order viagra it is as though we are invited to witness to a grande beginning. Order viagra Hido’s monographs are often celebrated for their elegant design and the beautiful yet understated aesthetic that Nazraeli Press books are known for. Order viagra Not only did they put out this most recent monograph, order viagra Nazraeli also published Hido’s 2004 series, order viagra Roaming. Order viagra Years later, order viagra A Road Divided is a continuation or extension of the photographer’s earlier landscape work.

Order viagra In this book, order viagra Hido returns to the aimless roads and empty terrains captured earlier in his career. Order viagra The attenuated, order viagra windswept forms appear accented by a painter’s brush. Order viagra This effect is achieved by ingenious use of the blurry, order viagra rain-streaked ‘lens’ of the artist’s car window. Order viagra The monotone palette of each image serves to gather a wide spectrum of feelings and memories into each resounding image. Order viagra We recall Emily Dickinson’s stark words: “Nature is a haunted house–but Art–is a house that tries to be haunted.”

Order viagra Perhaps that is the difference between Hido’s past work and A Road Divided. Order viagra The latter is an expansion, order viagra an avid embrace of life itself. Order viagra It does not try, order viagra but truly haunts. Order viagra Not only does A Road Divided feel more considered in terms of image sequencing, order viagra the photographs themselves possess a poignancy that registers on a higher level. Order viagra As an object, order viagra the book is truly beautiful. Order viagra We at PIP encourage you to ride shotgun with Hido, order viagra and take a ride.
