In a collection of gorgeous photographs of his hometown of Kent, Ohio (among other isolated U.S. suburbs), Hido has captured a fascinating sliver of small-town life. Our favorites are the stunning shots of local girls, playing main characters in a cinematic art show, against backdrops of snow-filled desolation. Named after an actual town in the Midwest, Silver Meadows depicts the rural inhabitants' eventual escape to a sex-, drugs-, and rock-'n’-roll-fueled life.
Intrigued? Be sure to see the striking photographs in person (and meet their maker at the opening tomorrow tonight) before a tome hits bookshelves later this year.
