Christie's catch up with the photographer behind the wheel of his car while cruising through the California suburbs after dark — looking to add to his celebrated series, Homes at Night. ‘Photography is the thing I use to express myself, or to figure myself out.
 
’ Driving through the suburbs of San Francisco, he pauses occasionally to train his camera on a building that could be the next in his celebrated series, Homes at Night
 
 ‘I’m a portrait photographer, I’m a night photographer, I collect found photographs, and the reason I do that is that they’re all components that I’m able to pull together to create a story,’ says Todd Hido. ‘There’s a communication that happens between people and pictures… that’s a really wonderful thing.’
